    I'll have a look and see if I can improve this. The thing is that these 
    new LilyDev machines (compared to the old ones) come ready to be used, 
    without the hassle of a step-by-step installation (which on the other 
    hand would allow to configure the system as you like). It's a trade off.


I really appreciate your work on maintaining and improving LilyDev.  It's SOOO 
much better to have LilyDev than to have to create my own installation from 
genric distro iso's.  You've really cut down the work required for me to get a 
usable development environment on my MacBook pro.
That being said, I don't find the latest versions of LilyDev to be an nice as 
previous versions.  I don't like the pre-configured setup.  I didn't want my 
user name to be dev.

I went back to LilyDev 4 and just installed updated Ghostscript and the URW 
fonts.  I'm happier that way.

I can't speak for others, but for me, I want LilyDev to solve all of the 
problems of which Unix distro I should use and which packages I should have 
installed.  But I want to do my own setup customization for users, time-zone, 
language, etc.

Also, it's a challenge to me that we keep moving Unix distros (Ubuntu, Debian, 
Fedora).  I've been really happy with Debian.  I'd like to avoid changing away 
from it if at all possible.
