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.

I don't run into any problems, with the caveat that you still have to ensure the dependencies yourself if you're not using NetPkg. I have Slack on one partition and Zenwalk on the other, and routinely download packages to one and then install them on the other later. I have also cross-installed programs I've compiled myself (Rox-Filer, rtorrent and a couple other little must-haves). They're both rock-freakin-solid. The only problem I've ever had with either is with video drivers. I pretty much have to use the nvidia driver. The Xorg nv driver won't give me full resolution.
