lol, sorry, I was going to not have DSL but, then I thought people would get pissed off at me so I decided to give it its own little section. Anyways polls are useless as they say on the slashdot polls
# Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
# Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
# This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

Thats what they want YOU to think!

I use DSL as a live CD and will eventually hdinstall it on my old 60Mhz Pentium computer once I get my old Microsoft PS/2 mouse working with the kdrive servers (could be a while).

My installed Linux is currently Peanut Linux, which is great for multimedia and is not too bloated. Especially version 9.4
Version 9.5 has KDE which adds to the total install size.

I use Slack9.1 with fluxbox for my main machine but DSL for my little p150 32meg screamer.
Runs like the proverbial off a shovel with ADSL.
It gives me great pleasure to run a lean & mean machine without the bloat of other distros.
Just keep them coming John :)

I think,
livecd -> DSL (small machine), Knoppix
newbies -> SuSe, Yast2 ist very great tool or Knoppix!
spezial projects like CFD-HD install -> DSL!!! :-)
workstation -> RedHat 9, Knoppix!
Router -> fli4l  Floppylinux

I'm currently using Debian on my 2gig 512meg box - but I cheated the "can you install Debian?" test by using a hd install of Knoppix.   :p

I'm on dial-up anyway, so upgrading a Woody install would have been a very tedious business.

I have Vector Linux 3.2 SOHO on my Pentium 200mmx 64meg machine, but my next project is to install DSL on it. Vector is a nice distro, but I can't resist the opportunity to have a really lean Debian-compatible system on the old box...

I think DSL is a fantasic achievement- congratulations to John and all concerned.
