So Dr. Small supports "Rube" Paul for US President in 2008, eh? Well, to each his own, I suppose, but I don't think that he would be the best candidate.

FWIW,

*pokes head in*

I like 'green' references...as long as we walk the talk (which we do, in terms of revitalizing 'dead' boxes).

Ron Paul 2008

I got the idea he didn't like it.  The reasons were strange (confused by the installer, GIMP not on the iso).  Considering installing GIMP from gslapt is a piece of cake I found it a rather clueless "review".

Can we leave the politics out?   Politics and religion can turn a very friendly forum into something very different.  For example, I could write endless paragraphs about why Ron Paul is the worst possible choice on the planet to be elected President.  Would you like me to do that?  Oh, and yes, I support a specific candidate.  Visit my personal blog if you want to know which and why.

It's working now.

Btw,  I've found an article in http://lucky13linux.wordpress.com/2008/01/22/current-laptop-info/ talking about a vl installation.  It went pretty fine.....

The reviewer liked it all except the lack of OpenOffice.org.

Some very nice comments on that one, so far I specially like this one:

    Prodded by this thread, I d/l-ed the VL5.9 install .iso and put it in the old Dell Optiplex GX1 500s+ I have on my desk at work. P-iii/500MHz, 160MB RAM, 20MB HD. It's been giving attempted PCLOS and MEPIS installs problems, never configuring the built-in soundcard right. Not only does VL5.9 get it right in one, *WOW* does it run snappily! I don't think I've seen boot text scroll by that fast in a long while! Certainly faster than PCLOS. And even under xcfe, it includes a favorite KDE app, K3b. I also liked having 4 different web browsers available (Firefox, Seamonkey, Opera, Dillo). On my work machine, VL5.9 is a keeper. Once you get past the old-sk00l dos-shell-blue install screens, it's gorgeous!
