A man will die, but not his ideas.

It is all about choice...

Oh boy, when it comes to the world of Linux and Unix, it really is all about choice! I've been reviewing various distibutions and my head just can't stop spinning from all what I saw. It is an ocean out there. I saw Live CD distributions, installable distributions, and even very very tiny distributions bootable from your 128 MB USB flash memory drive.

The question right now is: what will I settle on? I'm still putting some hopes on Solaris 10 or OpenSolaris, and I'm really glad that Sun decided to open-source the Java Desktop System (JDS). However, I really liked Ubuntu and it's features. And while Damn Small Linux (DSL) and similar micro-distibutions, such as SchilliX and BeleniX, are not in the picture when it comes to installing an OS on my PC, they are really a very good choice for an on-the-go OS. In fact, I might consider burning a Live CD for BeleniX just to have a feel of Solaris if a full installation is not successful.

For dual booting, I'll probably use GRUB (GRand Unified Bootloader) , I just hope Windows doesn't complain :$ . One last thought, I'd really love to see Project Looking Glass taking its way into such a world of choices. But while I'm waiting, I'll keep looking at the screenshots found over here and dream of what is to come.
