    Re: Your Favorite Non-Debian/Ubuntu Distro?

    I've been trying distros to use on an old laptop that for some reason doesn't like newer *buntu installers. Yes, PCLinuxOS is alive and kicking I have that on one partition. I also installed openSUSE gnome on another partition. OpenSUSE with Xfce-session-manager works pretty well, uses around 240 MB. RAM while running FireFox.

    just a heads up. if you have trouble running graphical installer try the mini iso. You can install a command line only system and then sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop or kubuntu-desktop or xubuntu-desktop. Or you could even install xfce, kde,etc without the ubuntu additions.
    Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.

    This, without any doubt. In its own way, it's much simpler than Ubuntu - by rejection the notion of simplicity of learning the system in favour of simplicity of the system itself.

    Manjaro and Bridge work really well.
