Haha. Are you worried you might prefer it to Debian?
Even Ubuntu are warning against using Ultimatix now.

Mission accomplished. Communicating via Iceweasel. Over and out.

Assuming Gnome, you might find the Epiphany browser superior in every way ... Bookmarking technique takes a little getting used to. There is also a webkit version under heavy development, but not quite ready for prime time. When it is, Firefox/Iceweasel will be completely obsolete.

Thanks for the tip, I've never tried Epiphany. Yes, I went for the desktop option rather than building it up bit by bit. I'm pleased with the result. Slackware's still my all-out favourite, but Debian is a damn close second. I like the contrast the two distros offer.

We seem to have more or less hijacked this thread.
