    Running a hurd kernel I think. I installed it from the Antix dev repos. We'll see how it goes.

    If your into Microkernels... You should try running L4-Linux

    I am not sure when u run Linux atop L4 though if you still have full hardware compatibility. i.e. video drivers etc.

    I have a feeling their may be limited compatibility, unless the L4 kernel allows device drivers direct access.

    On a different note have u tried running a Linux RT kernel, i really like the current Debian Wheezy 3.2.0.3 rt kernel.

    Well, I moved on to another testing install before you posted. This desktop is a triple booter with 2 AntiX testing installs. Alpha 1. Yesterday moved on to Alpha 2.

    Being a team member of MacPUP and AntiX. My plate is pretty full with bug fixing on the distros I am a team member of. So L4 won't be on the schedule.
    I did the gnu hurd kernel just as a test to see if all my hardware would work with it. I can say that so far so good with it. But new Apha2 uses a 3.6.6 kernel with
    the ext4 file system bug fix. Eventually. This Desktop will be a single booter with only AntiX 64bit running on it. I have been planning this as my Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 64bit
    install on /dev/sda1 reaches End of Life. I like the rolling release schedule in AntiX testing Debian repos. Might go with sid repos though as I get better with this.

    Today is just spending time on moving over files from Ubuntu and AntiX Alpha 1 install over to my fresh Alpha 2 install.
    Plus making it my own (pretty).

    Been running debian squeeze since it became stable. Started from ubuntu 9.0.4, but now on my and my wife's desktop it is all debian squeeze. on my netbook, it is still running ubuntu 10.10. Too lazy to update it since it is running pretty well. came in here to find some answer for my hp photosmart 5520 for its scanning purpose.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Yes, I understand that! If my wife used Windows (she is a mac pro) I'd be cleaning them just about now...
    Right now, I have to fix the fence that the wind blew down 2 nights ago...

    Running Mint Debian as my main personal distro, but I use CentOS/Scientific on a daily basis.

    Considering switching to Fedora as RHEL 7 is coming out next year, and I want to be ahead of the curve at work.

    My laptop is the only machine I use nowadays, and I like to dual boot it. In the past, Zenwalk + Ubuntu has been combination that's worked. However, despite really giving the new Unity environment an honest chance, I decided that it's just not for me, at least not now. And the last time I installed Zenwalk, I couldn't get the screen resolution to work. I'd been just putting up with Ubuntu, but recently installed Mint. I'm very pleased that I found a new home for the time being. Now, I'm looking for another distro to play with on my other partition.

    Maybe give Vector Linux a spin Artesia since you were used to using Zenwalk. I have VL 7 STD Gold running on the Amrel laptop and on a older IBM m41 Desktop OK.

    Thank you, I'll keep that in mind. What initially attracted me to Zenwalk was its ability to run on older machines, and it remains a desirable attribute for me.
