A puzzling review.  Author is technically competent and seems to understand DSL reasonably well.

I disagree - a technically competent user would have realized he'd need a real X installation to support a i855 card fully. I also found the review lacked detail; the author seemed bent on finding problems (a section in a technical review dedicated to Artwork?!) instead of supplying how he tried to solve the problems, which is what I find the best reviewers do. (For example, I found more than one instance of 'I suspect'). I have nothing against the review (or the author), but I suspect the author should have taken the time to have an indepth look at the distribution.

eTower 566.12, 32MB RAM, 7GB HD, 200MB swap, 1x USB v.1, Intel 810GFX, Intel 810 Audio.
Recompiled so far: Pretty much everything. I think I'll have to do a remaster to cut the growing bloat off my system.
