Pros: fastest and most stable distro I have tried
Cons: for me, none

I'm using Zenwalk 2.2 it is very fast and has been rock stable so far. ( i installed it the day it was listed on distrowatch ) About the only thing I don't like about it is
the boot loader. I prefer grub but I can live with lilo.
Unless a better version of linux comes along I'll stick to
Zenwalk. roywhite

Pros: Sleek setup
Cons: Will not work in an HP-64 AMD machine with Broadcom BCM4306 wireless card.

After I downloaded this distro, and burned it into an CD, I rebooted the HP-64 AMD laptop. This distro would not even boot up! I thought that I had burned a dud or a bad download. However, to verify this, I put the "live" cd in a Dell desktop. On that machine, it ran fine! So it did prove that for whatever reason, it was totally incompatible with the HP zv6000 laptop. It was not a bad download or a bad burn-in.
