I now have XOSL as my boot manager.

Posted 03-02-2009 at 11:38 AM by leobing

I have installed XOSL as a boot manager and it is very good. I made a 1gig partition of ext3 Linux and installed XOSL there. Using it I don't have to go into any of my linux partitions to change the boot managers characteristics. It has an option on boot up to edit it.
I have been running Mepis 8 lately. It is much better at running things out of the box than the Ubuntus. It uses Debian. I have a 22" wide lcd monitor and the Ubuntus are unable to run 1600x1000 or so and that bugs me. All the other distros I have installed are able to see this monitor so why not Ubuntu?
I am running Sabayon 4 which is a Linux version using gentoo system and it is very nice. everything I have tried to run in it has worked flawlessly so I see it as a very good Linux version. Still Slackware is best Linux for me. If you are willing to do a lot of reading and mucking around you can make it do anything you might want and I have never had any of the Slackwares lock up or really slow down. I have wine working well and I use it to program my FTA software which is windoze only.
