Slackware, Slax "Zenwalk 3 is an operating system based on Patrick Volkerding's Slackware GNU/Linux distribution, version 10.2. The entire operating system fits on a single CD, and stays true to what the author calls the 'Zen philosophy'. This philosophy, as it has been coined, refers to Zenwalk's policy of including one application per task. I've had a few problems with Slackware and Slackware-related systems in the past, but Zenwalk has alleviated all of my stress regarding those issues. Here's why."

I'm not looking for respect. I believe in the philosophy. Don't burn bridges just because you have matches.

I simply wonder if this interpretation of "the philosophy" has any useful end. If one placed a user who had no knowlege of Java licensing in front of a Zen box with or without Java, would he be able to tell the difference between the "liberated" and "non-liberated" versions except when Java programs failed to execute? Would "cp" or "dd" feel different on the "liberated" box?
