    Another Distro trial ;) : Frugalware
    http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=frugalware

    Interesting Slackbased distro
    Comes on 2 DVD :eek:
    1: OS and heh: base setup.
    2: almost anything you could possibly want !!

    Installed in VM: use IDE HD option and fix HD size to avoid some issues :blink:
    text installer but very clear options

    Took all the defaults: takes about 40 minutes to install: and what an installation :)

    The defaults give a session manager with options to test almost any desktop you might want lol

    Default
    Custom
    Blackbox
    FVWM
    Gnome
    Gnome/Openbox
    IceWM
    KDE
    KDE/OpenBox
    MWM
    Metacity
    Openbox
    TWM
    Windowmaker
    XFCE4
    Failsafe

    :eek: :eek: :D
    And thats just the GUI
    From the defaults at installation !!

    Ive had issues with Slack due to dependencies in the past but latest devs seem to be geting past all/some of that

    FF extensions dont break and install into FF in one desktop carries all into other desktops heh
    Great multimedia support oob.
    Nice fonts and graphics.
    OO latest.

    Have a go.

    regards.
