Linux After reading a discussion on DistroWatch asking if users were happy with their current distribution, I noticed a common thread of those who have had similar experiences as myself with juggling various Linux distributions. Like myself, they feel many Linux distributions are great, but no one quite feels like home. None of them quite fit the bill and they may even begin to think that every OS sucks.

I too have tried every other linux distro I can think of.
Began with Suse and then Redhat (for about a day). Stayed with Debian for a few years, then Gentoo for a few months ( system got trashed after emerging world one day and never looked back). Went to FreeBSD and absoluetely love it (still use it on my server), but couldn't mount the Reiser FS I'd set up on my second drive. At long last went to Slack. I won't be changing again. Downloaded swaret right away and don't have any installation issues.

Except -- and this is off topic, sorry -- that XFCE always has these weird little black boxes drawn over various pieces of the window. It's really agrivating. Can anybody tell me what that's all about?
