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.

Nice article and gives me the dejavu feeling i had after having installed PCLinuxOS.

One of the few distros which offers PAE i686 kernels so i can activate the NX bit on my amd64 kernel.although i "only" have 1 GB RAM and the kernel is geared towards 64 GB RAM max.booting with noexec=on noexec32=on gives:NX (Execute Disable) protection: active when i issue: dmesg|grep NX

Awkwardly no other distro exept pclinuxos (at least that i know off) did it.
