Yeah, its a feature i like. Maybe i'm just complaining about the lack of
packages for pure 64 :p, again i figured there was a community of pure64
users that were contributing packages (slower but eventually - not true)

I tried other browsers before i went the with webkit/surf on this system,
i did most of my work with lynx, i tried opera, links2, w3m etc... none of
which anyone else was using on pure 64 :p (goes back to my initial bad choice)

yes, i really enjoy the boot speed of tinycorelinux with the least deps for
wifi, dwm (et. al.) , surf, acpi; but when i boot into this system its
because i
want to develop something, and so i always end up loading the rest of the
world to build stuff. and i forget api's all them time, of which i end up using
manuals for (which surely you've noticed everyone purposefully strips them
out of packages (i do it too)...
