Descent is most definitely one of the best distros I have installed for some time. There are however a couple of things to consider. One is specific and the other more general.

Specifically, and despite the obvious demands on personal time elsewhere, it is very important to at least acknowledge forum posts and respond timely to support requests. I appreciate many users don't look beyond their noses for answers but others will soon move on to another distro if they feel neglected.

Generally, one of the most recurring complaints I get is about the untidy nature of tray icons. Launch icons can of course be customized and spaced at will, but the others pose more of a challenge. Cinnamon and KDE provide a much better experience and although to many this might seem like a trivial argument, it does nevertheless put a lot of folks off.

If a way can be found to make these icons look more consistent it would be a bonus.

Well, for the tray icons, I've been working on that, and the only possible solution will be actually using a more scalable icon theme. I'm working on the rebranding for Descent|OS 4, and the new icon theme seems to be playing ball so far, but it is a work in progress nonetheless.

If you're curious about what I'm trying to do, here's a rough screenshot of Descent OS 4 that I've been working on (This is the one I use personally, and is nowhere near ready for distribution)

Many thanks for responding. I do appreciate this is a minor consideration for some but for others a clean "look" is sometimes more important than how the OS behaves. Keep up the good work. Smile
