what do you think about linex?

I need a small distribution for OpenOffice.

What is better? Linex install 2.0 or Linex Woody install 3r2.

The great thing about linux is that you could customize either to suit your purposes. As far as speed goes, I am partial to the 2.6.x kernel woody has, but that is just my opinion. Aside from that there is not mcuh difference between the two.

If you have no clue, i'd say install debian 2 because upgrading is A LOT easier than downgrading with debian.

i ve chosen debian 30r2. Is this o.k.?

I'm asking because i don't know it until now because my x11 is crashing while start. (something like this: x connection broken to 0.0 (or similar)).
