Bonzai Linux


Is anyone here running this Distro? I know it used to be called "mini-woody" and is supposed to be easy to install as well as have good hardware detection built in. I was wondering if anyone knew of any forums or help files that are NOT in German? Also, if you are running it, could you tell me if the included help files or man pages are in english or german. I know that you can choose english at install, but, I was wondering if the whole will be in english or will it be like knoppix where some of the sub menus remain in German until you manually change them? Lastly, if you are using it, what are your impressions of it?

Thanks!

I tried it a couple of months ago. I think everything was in English, but not 100% sure.

Impressions - hardware detection mediocre. It could only detect my ps2 mouse. Using a Logitech usb one completely threw it. However, it got me interested in Debian, and I downloaded Mepis instead - brilliant, much better.
