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.

"XFCE Desktop on Linux?

Don't see much difference here than just running XFCE on any other distro."

It's Xfce on a customized Slackware 11 with a 2.6 kernel and HAL/dbus support. It has a package management system with dependency resolution yet still maintains full compatibility with Slackware packages. It is tweaked to run almost as fast and responsive as VectorLinux (another Slackware-based distro) but more newbie-friendly.

I could go on all day, but asking what makes any distro different from all the others will get you the same lengthy response.

But then, you already knew that, didn't you?
