Somehow, I found OpenBSD a disappointment.
I was thrilled to see UNIX in any form available,
but having been one of folks who used UNIX on a
PDP-11/70 back in the late 70's, I was surprised
to find so much unchanged. Drivers with the same
name comes to mind... It was like taking a step back into
the dark ages. I did enjoy some of the old editors
on very early versions! "B-Zero-L-T was fine wiith me.
Some of the fixed font editors have features I sometimes miss.
Now there is something for a cover disk,
some distro loaded up with editors....

If I was to buy another mag off you I would have to know that the main distro dispayed on the disc cover was going to be usable.

I bought the mag with the Debian distro highlighted a few weeks back and was cut to ribbons to find it was just an extra to be ISO'd. I did try mageia and found that to be splendid. I love KDE when it is coded properly and this is the best one I have used.

So all is forgiven except I won't be trying any more of your distros.

I liked the recent extra disc with all the games and I liked the multi desktop environment (mint mega-mix) disc.
I would like to see Korora on the cover disc.

I have enjoyed Ben Everard's last couple of Back to Basics articles. As a recent subscriber I have used the archive section to look at some of the Python and programming articles.

Love my DamnSmallLinux but I really can't take it anymore.

What I want, maybe **NEED** is a better word, is a LIVE-CD
with an up-to-date browser which works with older hardware.
512 meg and even an old pentium **OUGHT** to be enough
to send an E-mail, or post to a forum. IF I can view YouTube
vids great. This hadn't ought to be rocket science fellas!
It has to come from a magazine-

I visit friends. Pop a cd into their machine and sometimes open
a whole new world for them. They don't want to UNGzip, compile,
or basicly pullout the linux toolbox to install something.

to demo Linux, it has to load fast (ie, be small) and have some basic
features, or seamless downloadable binaries available.

I might make a comment here also, but please take it with
a grain of salt. Some of the names given to programs offend some
of my friends. Myself, I think it's sort of funny... but then, they
don't know many computer types.


I stick some humungus DVD in their system and reboot
and it starts taking up too much time is scares the <-----> out of em.
