Quote from: Sector11 on January 21, 2013, 12:00:28 AM@ jst_joe - You and followed the same path, but for different reasons.Ubuntu 7.04 to 8.04 when I switched to Xubuntu because Ubuntu was really slowing down on my P-III with 512MB RAM.Then I noticed the same thing when Xubuntu hit v9.04 ... really bothered me too, because they claimed it was "light - for older computers" and I loved Xfce over GNOME.I went distro-hopping, not for testing, but looking for something that would work a little faster. Imagine my surprise when I installed #! v9.04.1, knowing it was Ubuntu based.At first I was lost ... installed programs and they weren't in the menus. Bad menu, bad bad! What did I do wrong? It did get easier... and I got hooked on #! and OpenBox, with a computer upgrade (used parts) from the P-III to an AMD64 single core with 2GB RAM ... I was flying high!And along comes #! v10 with an Xfce session added - I talked VastOne into trying it. He loved it. Somewhere in this happy mess #! switched to Debian "testing" that made me even happier.CRUNCH! BANG! SCREECH! HALT! Next version of #! and it was OpenBox only. OH! OH! VastOne was not happy! He installed Xfce4 and went to work. Tweaking this, doing that, pulling this out adding that bit ....And here we are!Now Don't get me wrong, I love #! and still do. It's based on "testing" and as solid as a rock, despite what they say.I've been running SID since I used VastOne's "Yet another Debian Net-install script" and added #! scripts to it. If #! is the greatest Distro east of the Atlantic, then VSIDO is the greatest little Distro west of the Atlantic.If someone wants Debian "testing" I recommend #! hands down, without even blinking an eye.If they want SID ... "Have to heard of VSIDO?"
