First, the weak disclaimer. I'm hard to please, granted. But I'm just trying to do something perfectly normal.
- Install as /dev/sda1
- Don't use a swap, or use my 8MB fake-swap-partition
- Don't overwrite my MBR (please!)
I had no intentions of doing any kind of in-depth review, nor of doing any shred of troubleshooting.
What I wanted to do is pick some other base so that I could do some window management compiling and testing.
On with the freakshow..

I wasn't forgiving enough for some of these distributions, and it really does look like I could have re-tried things to get them going.
For some issues, I could have probably looked for a solution online. But to me, if a distribution doesn't have the decency to work with an average situation, then there's no way I want it. What happens when something really hits the fan?
Maybe I'll re-try some of these distributions when next i have the urge to harm my faith in Linux. But I'm just as likely to pick another set of distributions.
Well, so much for testing window managers. Maybe some distro will work some day. I hope to Zeus I don't ever have to try Ubuntu..
