http://ubuntuforums.org – hi. i was very interested in artistx mulitmedia until i noticed it is 4gb download! i only have the time with slow connection to download anything from 500mb to 1gb. 2gb possibly but it would take forever. I simply would like a nice system for another free partition i have for building websites and anything multimedia. i build alot of websites. it can be based on anything ubuntu/debian arch gentoo. simply because i am going to use it just for the preinstalled programs. thanks (Hardware)
