A Windows XP-ish Debian at 120Mhz

| The novelty in this is not in the desktop 
| arrangement; Iâve been slowly tweaking and 
| adjusting this setup for the better part of a 
| year. In fact the fun part of this is that Iâve 
| never been able to arrange it on this machine, 
| even though I wanted to for quite a while.


Rounding out a terminal-based Debian system

| Test runs at 120Mhz suggest this is a clean and 
| brisk way to browse without overburdening the 
| machine to a point of unusability. Firefox with 
| Flash it is not, but if you are an unbeliever 
| and demand a graphical browser on a Pentium Pro, 
| this will satisfy. Furthermore, adding fbi to 
| your system brings along fbgs, which allows you 
| to display images and pdf files, respectively. 
| For the reverse, try fbgrab and share your 
| desktops with the world. 



Still very cool: Debian floppy install

| I like Debian for being somewhere in between a
| beginnerâs distro and an advanced distro. Many
| of the high-end, menial chores required by
| Crux et al. simply evaporate in Debian, and at
| the same time Debian doesnât seem to âpush
| your face in the plateâ like Ubuntu sometimes
| can. Youâre still responsible for managing a
| lot of what happens with your system â kind of
| like Arch.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
