Seems like a good release...

Will have to try it once I get my laptop harddrive working again. In other words, a new harddrive. I really liked the first review of this distro and will just wait to see more reviews about it. I am really starting to get persuaded into trying it.

List of good distros to me:
Gentoo, Slackware, Slax, Zenwalk, Vector

Distros I have not liked:
Fedora, Redhat, Mandrake, Knoppix, Kanotix, Ubuntu

Yes, it's a good review. I might also try Gentoo now too. The installer looks really good and you can have a full desktop with Gnome quite easily. It seems that Gentoo shouldn't scare anyone now.

By the way, you should try Arch Linux if you liked those distros you mention.

Just curious what you liked/didn't like about these distros. I tried Ubuntu but it ran noticably slower on my machine so I returned to Gentoo. I'm about to give Vector a try since it's billed as working well on older harware.
