Xubuntu reverting to non-pae kernel?

And maybe, just maybe, we can get Colin Watson to bear the brunt of the work???????????

I tried to hammer this home here:


So maybe my harping along with a request from the Xubuntu devs got things rolling. I think Colin does know that 90% of my suggestions/requests are at least somewhat sound. Sadly the other 10% are generally insane ;^(

Due to visual limitations I've never mastered IRC chat but maybe you could ask Colin, or the installer-team in general, and get an opinion.

I saw it also, and still thinking about it. My point to keep pae by default was because nobody else done the same. I didn't want to maintain this exception only for us, and to give work to people only for this.
Since Xubuntu switch to non-pae by default, and the change to do it for us is very small, I am starting to think that we should do the same. Or, I can't see any point to not switch to non-pae by default.

If it's true I wonder if Lubuntu shouldn't do likewise. I personally think it makes sense since one of our target markets is low resource hardware.

Maybe someone could ask Colin Watson's opinion?
