So I set myself a challenge: install a different distro (Debian Etch) and use it for a minimum of one month. Fairly straightforward – I even decided not to gear the test against itself, I will be using KDE as the desktop wherever possible.

Anyway, some initial thoughts on Debian. Coming from a Slackware background, a lot of things are not intuitive. For example: in Slackware, when I install Ndiswrapper, its a simple case of ./configure, etc etc and then a bit of modprobe-ing and there you have it. Its a wee bit different under Debian. In fact, its a lot more different. A couple of times I came close to giving up altogether, but I persevered and it all works fine.
