Linux I have so much to thank Bill Gates for: introducing me to the baffling joys of consumer computing with Windows 95; teaching me the meaning of fear and dread with Windows 98; leading me to the sunlit uplands of Windows XP; getting me out of Microsoft altogether with the arrival of Vista. I hardly know where to start. And if I hadn't flown into a high-minded anti-Microsoft, down-with-Bill-Gates fury at the start of this year, would I ever have stumbled upon ZenWalk? I doubt it.

Would it have been terribly difficult to link to "ZenWalk" for those of us who have never heard of it?

Guess its time to hit google so I can at least see some screenshots.

Was thinking the same thing.I wanted to see a screenshot of his system since he was willing to key us in on some of his hardware.

Ever hear of DistroWatch?



Now, a comment on the actual article (about Audacious):

I'm not sure, but I have a feeling the writer just stuck with the default skin (most likely), or is just not into the Winamp-style look to begin with. Personally, I love it--it's my favorite app--considering I've been using Winamp in Windows since around 1997, and I prefer its simplicity over a full-blown media library-style program. If there were no Audacious, my switch to Linux would've been much harder.

Its default skin in Zenwalk isn't too good though; in fact, I barely remember what it looks like (too bright, white and plain, that's all I remember). I changed it a long time ago (that collection I built up over the years in Windows still comes in handy). But one thing's for sure: the skin "ArcticAMP" looks daaamn good, nice and clean, good colors, and has been my choice for at least half a year. Looks great with the default Zenwalk theme, although I've customized my entire Xfce theme.

Anyone who wants to check out ArcticAMP, here's a link:

Would it have been so hard to read the second page of the article and use the link provided there?

Should one have read most of the first page and still been left wondering what "ZenWalk" is? The writer failed.

The pagination is silly enough (most multi-part articles here have longer per-page content than this whole article), but not linking to it on the entire first page, much less the abstract/blurb, is just frustrating.
