OMG! I’m using a non-Debian Linux distro!

Over the long Memorial Day weekend I decided to do some further Linux distro-hopping, and so wiped out my beloved Crunchbang Linux to test the following distros:

sidux – based on Debian Sid (unstable)
Arch – although I cheated and used an Arch Live CD
Knoppix – also based on Debian
Mandriva – probably the second Linux distro I ever tried (after Red Hat) around the turn of the century

I had intended on installing sidux as a replacement for Crunchbang. Not that I was unhappy with Crunchbang, but because the idea of running Debian Sid was appealing to me. I’m generally not a fan on KDE (or XFCE), but I figured I would install LXDE and play around with that for awhile, although KDE 3.5 on sidux is pretty fast.
