A Good Double Act

Posted 01-16-2011 at 01:45 PM by brianL

Laurel and Hardy, Abbot and Costello, Morecambe and Wise, and of course: Slackware and Debian. I've done it before, and I'm doing it again. Dual-booting those two on my desktop. In the past, after a month or two, I've usually got fed up with Debian - but this time, it stays...well, maybe.
I was going to put the 64-bit version on, but then thought of trying the 32-bit with the bigmem kernel for a while. When the next Slack is released, then I'll be doing a fresh install and reorganisation of my HDD, so then I might put the 64-bit Debian on. I've got 4 GB of RAM, and the 64-bit or bigmem give slightly more headroom for virtualisation.
