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 live in a third-world country, and many children's future may be influenced by something like this - revival of old hardware. If you bother to read the DSL forum, you may learn something about just that. I don't think you know what poverty and people with no future prospects look like.

Secondly, it's a hobbyist/enthusiast thing that you obviously don't understand.

Third, it is cool to show your friends you can do fine without that other OS they are so dependent on ;-).
