It's no longer community driven and as such has turned into a dictatorship by central committee, albeit one that hands out source code and doesn't charge for the end product.
Worse, the open source nature of the project appears to have caused a degree of intolerable smugness and self-righteousness amongst those who are on this "Central Committee".
Orwell's Animal Farm explains it all.

The lesson seems to be that as soon as a small group of people, from within a larger group, suggest to everyone else that it would be a lot easier all round if they were in control, that those people should be thrown off the project on the spot, regardless of their skills or prior contribution and never allowed to return.
Be silent, or say something better than silence.

Having tried it in the live enviroment all I can say that I am well impressed with the Razor-QT DE.
Unfortunately the customisation of this distro is skin deep, the Ubuntu branding shines through on every turn.

I would compare the DE experience to LXDE (both use OpenBox) and it would be well suited for lower resourced machines.
I am considering a install to the HDD. Certainly worth keeping an eye on this DE.

I have not thought that it will go that low on resources, but hey if it works. :D

At the mo I am busy with rolling my own, with a clean install of Arch and razor-qt.
Well impressed so far. :)
