I installed Slack last week but only today did I got a chance to start playing with it. I'm running it on a 1GHz Dell C800 laptop with 256Mb of RAM. Here's the thing: I've never seen this computer fly so fast. Slack puts Debian to shame, but I don't understand why. All of the sudden X is responsive enough to use again (as compared to a 2.8GHz system with Gentoo). Has anyone else had that type of experience?
