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.

4 GB HD space is worth when you live in a subdeveloped country where your choices for getting any linux/BSD/whatever, an internet conection or even an old computer at all, are as high and varied as getting those $4 you talk about. And I guess I am not the only one in that enviroment here.
