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 just got a new Sager 5680 notebook (www.pctorque.com) last Friday. It's a monster machine for a notebook(3.0 Ghz/w HT, 1 Gig Dual-400 ram, ATI Radeon 9600 Pro Mobile..), so I can install basically whatever I want on it, but this distro looks to be perfect for my old IBM thinkpad 380ED that is still very useful and served me well during the lean times. It's great to see that fluxbox has desktop icons now. Fluxbox served me well too. It's good to have minimalistic live distros like this. It sucks when you can't run the newest stuff, but it's good to know there are distros out there that can make the best experience. By the way, Dillo is still the fastest browser I've ever seen. Go Dillo!
