    Just installed CAOS Linux on a Dell Dimension 2300
    2 gig. Intel processor 512 Meg Ram (older machine).

    I'm quite pleased with Arch Linux on my primary system
    but I'm also very impressed with CAOS Linux on this
    secondary system. I'll be testing it out over the next week
    or so by running a few servers and doing some python
    development. So far I'm very impressed. :)

    I'm using it now to post this message. ;)
    Soylent Joe says thanks.

    The repositories for CAOS linux are rather light
    but RPM packages are supported for any additional
    programs as well as compiling of source code.
    While I like this distro a lot, I've decided to take
    advantage of having an extra machine and take a
    walk on the wild side...
    I have installed openBSD.
    It has taken me a few hours to get online
    as I'm not a familiar BSD, but I'm getting there.

    One surprise was pkg_add as I thought I would
    have to do everything through ports.
    (I previously had Gentoo, so I am familiar
    w/ portage which was based on ports)

    I have lots of configuring to do, but I am online w/ openBSD. :D

    Yes it was about time to run BSD.
    Hopefully it will become my development environment.

    I did a CD install which was rather easy,
    it asked lots of questions but a default answer
    was already available for each question.

    I feel most any experienced Linux user should
    be able to install and use use openBSD 4.6.

    Now I have to download some more applications.
