well, as long as we're all just spouting crap

gentoo is a pile of shit suitable only for children. where is that guy
who couldn't change cursors because of gentoo's "optimizations"? he
should chime in.

archlinux is just gentoo but less well maintained.

debian is a bloated monstrosity -- anyone who thinks debconf is a good
idea is wrong and probably dangerously incompetent.

ubuntu has all the drawbacks of debian with all the incompetence of arch linux.

netbsd is run by crackpots.

freebsd is decent but not as nice as openbsd, although it's better at
scaling up with smp.

in the end, it doesn't matter which one you run, because you are using
wmii, and nothing will ever work correctly anyway. switch to a
maintained window manager and then worry about which bloated pile of
unreliable garbage you'd like to run underneath it.
