I am new here and am both excited to learn more about Elive and also to hopefully keep on using it. I've already installed it and uninstalled it twice since I kept getting a freeze-up whenever I wanted to change my Wallpaper and/or background in general. But here I am giving it another go since I disliked the fact that Bodhi, (the other distro I was testing out) uses systemd? Pretty sure that is not the case for Elive right?
But, to the point, I've been looking on the forums as to why use E16 as opposed to E17, for example? From what I read on Bodhi's website, E17 was better in quality than any releases after that. So I am curious? How/why is E16 "better" than E17?
I'm a fan of just having dark/black themes/backgrounds so I tend to be rather minimalist in that regard. I am rarely staring at a desktop background so fancy images don't mean much to me. Just one of my personal tastes/flaws I suppose.
I'll keep trying to read on the forums looking for an explanation but if someone here to point me to an explanation it would be great!
