Debian and its clones The 'Slug' has gained much-improved Linux support, thanks to a new Debian installer that targets the device. The first release candidate of the debian-installer for Debian's forthcoming 'Etch' distribution was released yesterday, offering nearly complete support to the Linksys USD 99 NSLU2 NAS gadget.

i have done it all - freebsd (95-present), redhat (up to fedora), fedora 1-3, ubuntu...of all of them, debian etch is the best OS i have used, i respect its principles and i intend to make it the last OS i install. of the rest, i also like ubuntu, but i prefer debian's policies and lack of boot-up music. freebsd is also good, but the day of ports has ended. the ports tree has grown to many megabytes while my sources.list is four lines...the day of managing a repository on the client passed some time back.

Yes - I completely agree. Apart from Etch there is only Ubuntu which is worth trying - at least for me. But Ubuntu is a little bit too kiddy-like for my taste - so it's Etch. And Etch _is_ rock solid already.
