Here are the featured projects for the week, which appear on the front page of SourceForge.net:
Lxle is a full featured OS for an aging PC. Change is good, but changing everything isn’t always great. Same is true for aging computers and their operating systems. Support is sometimes lost too quickly with a 6 month core release cycle. Graphics cards, audio cards, and chipsets get dropped, along with other miscellaneous functions, with programs or drivers that just go missing. We all like having updated software, but we certainly don’t like down time or loss of features and capabilities. I believe most aging hardware just needs the right system on it, and lets face it, it helps keep a couple bucks in your pocket if you can squeeze a few more years out of your current system; without sacrificing performance, capability, usability, and of course aesthetics.
