i really enjoy Salix OS. I tried OpenSuse, Ubuntu and Debian before, however this it is the only distro which is able to handle my SIS Mirage 3 OnBoard graphic chip with a screen solution of 1280x800. I do really enjoy XFCE 4.6, because it makes much less trouble than Gnome or KDE on my notebook. There are only two unkind things to consider: The lesser problem is that I am unable to configure LILO because of a corrupt MBR from an earlier PowerQuest BootMagic installation. But my old 16 MB USB flash drive has a new purpose: containing syslinux. The larger issue is, that it takes approx 5 minutes until Salix enters runlevel 4.
When I tried OpenSuse, the startup took only a few seconds. In my opinion this is because OpenSuse uses systemd instead of init, udev and consolekit. Do you think that systemd would increase the performance of Salix OS or is your opinion that a bonsai has to grow slow with love and a lot of KISSes? Will systemd be included by further Salix releases or will you wait until Salix' big brother Slack does the huge step to a modern competitive open source operation system?
