Linux It seems that I am in some sort of retro-mode. As Linux on the desktop is getting bigger and better, with more apps, more sleek looks (Galaxy, Keramik and Blue Curve for example) and more idiot proof, I am going onto simpler, more condensed stuff. The big distributions are nice, but I really do not need all the applications that come with them all the time.

I too have been concerned with the amount of bloat linux is gathering as it goes on. My linux distro of choice (for various reasons) Redhat has balloned into a 4+ Gig install with everything. I don't really have the patience to go through each bundle grouping to get rid of the software i will never use. This is why NetBSD has been my new favorite OS for some time. Full X86 bootable image on a 3" CDR is nice to have. I am glad to see this apporach to linux.
