It's hard to remember after eight months, but I'm pretty sure the usability of the desktop environment was not what was on my mind when I made that comment.

I would go with Debian for a system that I plan to regularly use mainly because of application support & availability, regular patches, documentation, larger community, hardware support, etc.

Nothing against TC or Slitaz -- they have their uses, and I've certainly put them to use -- but when you compare them to a mainline distro on those terms, there's just no contest.

I mean, hey, last time I checked TC didn't have emacs in its repositories. That's a non-starter for me .
