Not only do I hate gnome (for good reason: I always manage to find half a dozen bugs in any release, in the first 3 hours of use), but to think that Patrick spends 1/3 of his time to build and bugfix gnome alone, wow! Gnome must be a real dud.

I am a Slackware fan, but for the record, I have now switched to FreeBSD 5.2 with KDE. On that PIII 500 MHz, it feels snappier than RedHat 7.3 or Slackware 8. I highly recommend it, and you can install it through the net in various ways (I used FTP through HTTP proxy, IIRC).
