  1. I meditated, and my voice in my head sayd vinux, ever heard about that befor, just linux. Im open minded, am i programmed to something good?

  2. I really hope that this distribution gets more publicity. I work in a school for blind children and will try to introduce this to one of the students to begin with. Hopefully the school can donate some money for this.

    There are nowadays so much fewer applications for students that need to evolve their computer habits. Sadly many applications and systems being used have reached EoL.

  3. There also was Debian based Vinux in a command line interface version which many blind users prefer.
