There was a wiki for alphaOS but I think due to a lot of spam sim took it down

Yep, me likes sysvinit better than systemd

Well for me I like that alphaOS is lightweight and I like to run from linux live environment.

I've uploaded the new iso 15.1 with not that many changes:

- Fixed problem with mpv process remains active after gmp-video is closed
- Applications menu now uses GtkPopover
- Improved tabs in Taeni: make them reordable, and hidden when only one tab is opened
- Zoom and Speed menu options in GMP Video
- New conky theme
- Gtk theme is now based on Numix, with just colors changed

Download from:

Hi Sim,
Thanks for V15.1. Writing from it now.
One thing I noticed is that another window of spaceFM can't be opened by clicking the icon in the taskbar. To have a new window, I have to go to "File -->New Window" on the already opened one. You may want to look into that since V15.0 doesn't behave that way.
Cheers.

I wanted to change spacefm command when clicked panel icon, to open new tab (like does the terminal) instead of new window with:
spacefm -t
-t, --new-tab Open folders in new tab of last window (default)

but it didn't work, so I put spacefm -r to reuse current tab.

You can change that in /usr/share/applications/spacefm.desktop.

Iso doesn't support UEFI, but this new installer has a box for EFI System partition. I don't know for sure if it works, have no proper hardware to test.
