Sidux grows on you

Yeah!!! It sure does. Earlier this year, a relative passed away and I inherited his Dell Inspiron 1501. I tried several (if not all) of the 64-bit distros. The only one that really setup nicely and ran was sidux. The *buntus were very disappointing. I thought there was actually a PII and 128MB of RAM in this laptop after I tried them. There still are some real problems with that distro that nobody wants to talk about, but whatever... By contrast, I have an early G3 iMac w/Kubuntu on and that runs reasonably well, all things considered.

I'd like to also comment re the sidux scripts: smxi, sgfxi, svmi, ceni. If I'm not mistaken, it's recommended that these scripts be used for system maintenance. I haven't always done so without any negative results.

Get into the forums. Lots of great support, comments, and advice. It IS a great distro.
