I discovered JAMD about a month ago, and I have to say that it's won me over!

You get all the perks of Redhat 9, along with 686 optimizations, pre-setup apt-get, and a CORRECT setup of KDE 3.1.1 (Yes... They've gone back and fixed all of redhats problems with KDE!).

On top of that, they've defined a default desktop environment that's miles ahead of anyone else default setups, included only the best software neccesary for the average desktop use, and have included synaptec as their software mgt. program, allowing Joe User to easily add to and define his/her environment as needed.

Suffice it to say that JAMD is one of the best kept secrets in the Linux world.

Like Yoper? You'll love JAMD.

Like Vector? You'll love JAMD.

Like Redhat? Then you'll really love JAMD!

BTW... On a related note, has anyone figured out how to install ANY Linux distro's on a SATA Raid0 setup? I just upgraded my box, and while JAMD's running fine on my old box, I haven't found a way to get it to recognize my newer SATA-based box. Ideas??
