    Hello at all,
    I try to translate a little bit in the german language (Because it’s not only me, who hates read in english, if it could be german).
    But I’ve several times find the word “flavor”. I don’t know, what this word should say to me. In German, it means the same as taste. But what have taste to do whith an OS???

    Please tell me, what this word mean. (If somewone has a german word – very good ;-))

    I’m thankfull for all help.

    To stick with the cooking analogies used in SliTaz, we name our specialized versions of a release a flavor. This is like having different ice-cream flavors. They’re all still ice-cream, but one is chocolate and another is vanilla or banana flavored.

    Hallo walen
    Ich denke der Begriff “flavor” kann in einer deutschen ├ťbersetzung vieleicht
    umschrieben werden mit “anderer/spezieller/besondere Ausf├╝hrung/Zusammenstellung”, oder auch Variante.

    From what German I understand, I’d go with ‘Variante’.

    Thank you for help.
    I thougt, I could understand the english language. But it’s more difficult to understand the idioms than the language.
    But in fact, nobody is perfect. I have to learn a little bit more and the best way is learning by doing. ;-)
    I wish you a very good new year.
