Why did you get DSL? and Why do I use DSL? are two totally different questions.
Why did you get DSL? For the same reason I got about two dozon other downloads, just plan cirous, I like to test drive any new linux I can. It's a great learning experance.
Why do I use DSL? Because to date it is the best HD install on my 500mhz AMD 64mb ram Laptop. Everything worked right out of the box so to speak. Except the wireless nic card. Even the sound which was unusal, Mirco Suck didn't even do that from the factory. Lost98 never had any volume on the sound system, you could bearly hear it. DSL give me enough volume I can here it over the sound of the desiel engine while I'm in my truck.
It's funny thing though, I tried to use it here at home on my Desktop PC, and was greatly disappointed. DSL wouldn't run my 3com nic which all other linux distros see. So I use Puppy here at home.
Of course I still keep GNU/Debian 3.1 around and Slackware 10.2. Those are my old faithful distros. And in my cybercafe I still have to have Micro Suck, the masses of dumbed down PC users cry for LostXP, But I've managed to calm them with LostME, because I refuse to use XP on my equipment.
As soon as I get a good grip on win4lin I might can get them to run emulated LostME! That's my hope.
