Well, it was what is expected out of a debian release - great operating system. The wait was long but then it was worth the wait.
I have debian on a laptop - everything worked fine apart from the wireless card. Well, since the OS told me what drivers I needed it was no paint to download the drivers and get that running too.
I downloaded the VL6.0. I had huge hopes from it. Specially as I had found VL5.9.1 to be awesome and spectular (I am running out of superlatives here).
But VL6.0 was a big dissapointment. The GUI would crash whenever I tried to open the terminal, VLC did not start many more I dont want to bore you with.
This is a serious distro. I can say this is the most complete linux that comes on a cd.
My thanks to the Zenwalk team for this amazing little distro.
BTW :- Why is this not showing up on the front page of distros ?
I got this fc 9 dvd. I would rather install ubuntu cd honestly. Does not play mp3. Worse, for some reason takes a real time to install. I think I have noticed tht with all the distros with rpm formats. Stay away from this if u can.
I got a 8MB Suse11 DVD. Have a PC that has a Debian as the mail OS. Tried to intsall it. Everything went fine - only could not boot into Debain again. Tried to play mp3s in amarok - no go. Have to download ???? Why do you give incomplete applications to begin with? That sounds like $MS.
