Curious that you would even post this.
But really apples to oranges to bananas, comparing 2.6 gtk2 to a 2.4 gtk1 - really. Based on his view I should abandon my efforts on trying to keep a 2.4/gtk1 system alive. Everyone, including myself, should have enough money to dump all of our machines and go buy something that can run small distros that have larger demands.
Yet, the reality is that, there are many machines not able to run without frambuffer, 2.4, and gtk1.
The reality is that I still have users trying to get me to update 3.x, a 2.4.26 based system. Go figure.
I get complaints about offering scsi as loadable extensions instead of in core, yet do the other small distros offer all the modules that DSL has. Is that EVER mentioned in a review.
It seems that only DELIVERY/DOWNLOAD size matters and if it happens to work on the latest whiz bang reviewer's machine. Forget about system requirements or intended target machines.
Maybe, I should abandon DSL and become a reviewer. Now that would be something.
