"I reviewed the original release of Storm Linux a few months ago. It was a good distribution with some problems. The main problem was the update feature of the Storm Package Manager. Once it decided you had to download 70 MB's of updates, you couldn't persuade it otherwise."

"The deluxe edition of Storm Linux 2000 ships with 4 CD's and a pared down version of Heroes of Might and Magic III, in which the network play and editor have been removed."

"...While Storm is based on Debian, a lot of the libraries seem to be more up todate than before. For example, the version of Gimp ToolKit (GTK) included is up-to-date enough to compile most things. So far I've had no real problemswith software."
