I wanted Gnone for my desktop and XFCE for a really old laptop that has low capabilities.
I downloaded the xfce disk image and checked the checksum - GOOD.
I started to download the Gnome disk image and found that the checksum for both disks is that same.
Can that be so?
Also, whilst registering for this forum, I found that the forum software handles passwords in "clear text".
I would appreciate a warning about passwords not being secure. Is there a special place to request administrative things like that?
Thanks for the work all have put into this distro.
