That's what I figured. I hate polling demons like hal, and it's a reported resource hog on lower-powered boxes... ::). That's the main reasoning behind vl-hot (besides configurable flexibility).

You're right. HAL is a pain in the ass, and I'm glad you did such a good job with vl-hot.

Again, don't let the fact that the Slack repo for xorg 7 has 289 packages daunt you. There's a method to that seeming madness. ;-)

I just hope they don't get GNOME Syndrome.

Are you honestly suggesting using another base than Slack? I sure hope not. Let's look at slack some more:

NOOOOOOOO (big one).
Phew. I was getting scared for a second there lol.  :)

vector should take everything that suit its needs and is a good choice for the devs. It doesnt have to be all only from slackware,take everything from the open source world that is good  ;D

Very true, I just like the SW foundation. :)

I remeber hearing someone knocking forks as an illness, and while it can be, overall I see it just simply as more development, more contribution to the community from which others can then pull from. I certainly subscribe to taking the best of the best. :)

Going way back to the original post  :)

I've tried SaxenOS 2.0 and found it to be slower than molasses running uphill in the wintertime.  Their installer is counter-intuitive in places and tends to ask questions that don't need to be asked and doesn't ask questions where they really do need to not make assumptions.  At one point it even asks you to click Finish when a process is completed rather than just moving on.  SaxenOS installer is a very poor model for VL.

Wolvix 1.1rc2 is impressive.  They've done a really nice job with it and it is lightning fast when run from RAM or installed to a hard drive (frugal or full install).  It's Xfce 4.4 based and has a nice selection of apps.

I still need to look at Slax6rc6 and GoblinX 2.0.
