Slack and Dropline

I'm running dropline on 10.1 as we speak. I didn't even know freerock existed before I installed dropline. I was somewhat alarmed as I watched the installer replace my X server and a whole lot more (ugh, pam.)

Thankfully, I can say that my X experience with dropline has been trouble-free, save for the sometimes buggy nvidia binary driver (I need my TV out!). I'm running Xinerama with the onboard and an old geforce, and it's still really solid.

I'm not too concerned with dropline replacing stuff anymore. They've proven themselves to me. This is my desktop machine, and I'm willing to risk a glitch here and there for the desktop environment dropline provides. Seriously, I'm impressed by them. Timely updates to packages, a great environment, great installation and update utility -- dropline is nice.
