Linux-World.dk: Best Linux 2000 R2 Review

[ Thanks to Frederik Dannemare for this link. ]

"...I have a difficult time pointing at much negative about Best Linux. The installer is user friendly and fast. Autodetection of hardware is good as well, and I like having the opportunity to configure printer during install. The amount of software coming with Best Linux is big, plus you get the Games CD (with the retail edition), which I haven't had the time to try out yet."

"Besides from all this, I'm very pleased to see that Best Linux by default do not start a load of (insecure) system services, including web server, ftp server, telnet, etc. This is the way it should be. Let this be a lesson to all other (well, many of them at least) distribution not to do this. It can be a huge security risk with all these system services running, if they aren't properly post-configured."

"Only very few things displeased me, such as the 128 MB swap limitation and the fact that I wasn't allowed to select my OptiQuest V733. These are very small issues to me, and they don't alter my over-all impression with Best Linux 2000 R2. I really like this distribution, and I'm looking forward to new releases from the Best Linux Team.[I've just found out 10 minutes ago that Best Linux 2000 R3 has been released today (Oct 25, 2000)]."
