Hi Roberts, it looks fine and clear!. Perfect!

That was what I wanted to say with my poor english in:
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,12155.msg65052.html#msg65052

Core daily grows in functionality and usability. Thanks.

Do you really need ginormous buttons, or is this the result of the use of tiling window managers?

IMHO, It is results like this that I do not care of tiling window managers. It is fine if all one uses is xterm and cli but other than that it destroys the intended look and feel.

No, that is just the odd way controlpanel stretches.
Only the utilities column stretches horizontally, and
only the network row stretches vertically.

Must be WM specific as I do not get such results with default flwm.

lol  I could not figure out this window until downloading the screenshot to read those buttons..  Now it's clear and yes mine does the same using on xvesa and flwm_topside

That's funny, who would have thought of resizing that window..

just controlpanel should not stretch vertically or horizontally as in flwm*
controlpanel should not be stretched in any way

and another the same trifles:
here, change the version number to 4.5.1

Refreshed the version number.

i yet wanted to ask about what was skipped my notification here
about locales loading at tinycore boot time
this does not affect either to working capacity nor localizations displaying
because this can happen only in case if the locales is already installed
but the tinycore boots without lang bootcode
therefore this is not error but it is a mismatch
