Linux I have so much to thank Bill Gates for: introducing me to the baffling joys of consumer computing with Windows 95; teaching me the meaning of fear and dread with Windows 98; leading me to the sunlit uplands of Windows XP; getting me out of Microsoft altogether with the arrival of Vista. I hardly know where to start. And if I hadn't flown into a high-minded anti-Microsoft, down-with-Bill-Gates fury at the start of this year, would I ever have stumbled upon ZenWalk? I doubt it.

I used Arch Linux many years. Then suddenly got tired; too much fixing. I joined the Ubuntu-craze. Everything just worked, and it was almost as fresh as Arch.

However, now I see that I don't use any features of Ubuntu. I don't ever start Gnome, DBUS or any other resource hungry bastards. I run Ion3 and do everything in the terminal.

So I would maybe be better off making the switch back to the simplicity (and Zen ;) of Arch Linux. However, I've heard so much praise for Zenwalk (like this funny article), so I might just try that as well.
