  1. http://obscurethoughts.net/temp/openbox3.png Odd people would say Gnome has video problem... its actually a fact Gnome has better hardware support than KDE, though im not sure as both just upgraded 2.10 and 3.4. I personally cant stand using KDE for more than 5 seconds. It is way to bloated. The people on LUGRadio made an interesting comment. Someone should make a KDE Accelerated, KDE without the extra crap, just a nice lean DE. For now, OpenBox3 with PyPanel is the bomb. I boot to X. I hate GDM and KDM. I hate fancy stuff. Haha.
  2. If by 137GB hard drive limits,, its a BIOS issue. Windows/Linux wont restrict HDD size.
  3. No. They can choose precompiled binaries, compiled on someone elses computer. The main attractions of gentoo is portage and the CFLAGS/USE allowing the greatest optimization. Vidalinux strips you, pretty much, of the cflag optimization, meaning the binaries you install, are a) compiled by someone else (not optimized) missing cflags (but then again vidalinux butchers that great feature gentoo has) Im sorry but I disagree. The butchering of CLFAGS/USE renders portage useless imo. Slackware assumes you know what you're doing, if you need a dependency, you get it. Its package manager is actuall

  5. I strongly disagree with Vidalinux. It is a rather horrible Linux distribution. The only good thing about it in my opinion is portage, which is © Gentoo anyway. The main purpose of Gentoo and portage is ‘compiling’ from scratch; it being the major speed daemon of Linux distributions (the closet thing to a BSD system). Portage, being the package manager that compiles everything on demand for high speed optimizations. When you install Gentoo, the install process (depending on the stage chosen) is long and painful for a reason (to some users). It guarantees optimization of your system as you
