Eh don't worry about it :P Far too early to be concerned about things like that, and the topic came about from mentions within this post, and I myself
requested infos. Blame me ;)

In this thread meandean quoted
As far as a complete clone backup tool, as long as there is some way, even as basic as tar/gzip, to archive and extract a archive then you have the tools needed for a backup. Besides that it is just a matter of excluding the right things and tweaking the things that need it. Yea I am captain obvious. LOL
Earlier I quoted
The old established linux backup method was to tar and compress root from cli which gives file access (via extract) as well as the possibility to reinstall over a fresh install, which doesn't take very long today with a modern installer i.e. untar the backup file into root from a live CD. I have used this method to see if it works and yes it does (must admit it needed a little tweaking). I have been wondering whether a gui approach to this would be a good idea. Feel free to shoot me down in flames, just thinking outside the box!
My tweaks were modify fstab to reflect the new UUIDs, chroot and reinstall grub and update initramfs.
A gui (or restore option) built into the live DVD for system restore?

Looks like a few 32bit libs are going to be required to make steam work:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/st ... libGL.so.1

I think we need to tackle codecs next. We have 2 major web browsers available, 2 email clients, going
for LibreOffice next makes little sense at this point. I'll prioritize codecs. I'll also need to check the minimum
gstreamer version needed for 3.14 so we only so one set up updates there, not two.

I would suggest cmplayer as the video player but maybe it isn't ready yet. I forgot that you can enable hardware acceleration in vlc. I really love mpv on osx though.

As far as other included programs, I like like the simple defaults of xubuntu but some of the newer gnome applications like gedit might look nicer. idk. :roll:
