    So here's a review of Scientific Linux 6.5 Carbon 64-bit edition, a RHEL-based distribution with Gnome 2 desktop, tested on a laptop with Intel Wireless and SSD, covering look & feel, network connectivity, multimedia playback - Flash and MP3, installation in a quad-boot configuration, applications, package management, additional repositories, resources, stability, suspend & resume, problems like missing Samba and printer support, other things, and more.

    Hi Mrk, and thanks for the review!
    SL is definitely my favorite distro!
    How about the pimping guide, did you finally do it?

    Best!
