Distrochooser Updates - "Homeoffice Week 3 Edition"

  • 🚮 Removed some old code

Overhauling the distribution boxes

Quite many times the display of the distribution boxes (and the reason list) are called a bit difficult to understand. For this reason, I ditched the blue remarks box at the top and display the reasons by default. A button at the bottom of the distribution box was added to allow the user to hide a list, if wanted. The icon will be replaced soon by a more suitable one.

A remark on feedback

The feedback box is not a place to yell into. Remarks like "The old one is better" without a proper description why does not help me. I need a few details how and have to know why you are not pleased with the results.

The updates are now live on https://beta.distrochooser.de

Stay safe!
