You can turn off the side panels with the buttons that are just above them. I agree that it's too busy, and I really haven't figured it out yet. Just tried moving a file to a different directory today - just drag it from the main window to the appropriate folder in the tree view.
Anything in particular you want users to test or play with?
Do you plan something like this to be the default refracta release or is this just something extra?
Play with any of it and see if it breaks when the next round of updates come through (or any subsequent), or add some of dzz's (or anyone else's) repackaged packages, and see if those break.
As for the last question, I still don't know the answer to that. Earlier in the year, I was thinking that the official release would have both sysvinit and systemd. I've got a sid installation with that, and it was fine up until recently - I can no longer boot it with sysvinit. Haven't investigated to see what the problem is.
I've thought about having two official versions, one V and one D. I've also thought about having no official versions, just a bunch of unofficial versions, maybe concocted by different people, and I've thought about having just a minimal version with the tools to make your own. My feeling is that the tools are the most important thing, because no two people want the exact same setup.
