  2. Saw this yesterday. Interesting to see DSL resurrected, it was actually my second Linux distro ever...

    I have mixed feelings about it though. It certainly doesn't qualify as a complete desktop, not with a toy browser like Dillo.

    That said, I kind of wish something could be done about the absurd growth of modern applications. Look at Firefox 14, it uses up 4 times the hard drive space and probably 10 times the RAM of Firefox 1 (which ran fine on Windows 98 with 64 MB of RAM). And it now supports... The same extensions that it did 8 years ago, and HTML5 movies. Yay.
