Other Distrosview story

http://crunchbanglinux.org – I am using GALPon Minino (Pussycat SHED if Google translate is to be believed) right now on a computer too old for #!.  I am so impressed with this Debian based distro.  It may be the best small distro I have ever used but that will have to wait for the test of time.  If anyone else has tried it I would like to hear if it worked good for you too.http://linux.softpedia.com/get/System (HowTos)
