Why did I do this? I had the computer, and I had the disks. I blame Rupert.
Heh, in case anyone's wondering, he's referring to this thread
on old distros. Red Hat 6.1 was pretty good, as I recall. I still have the official Red Hat 4.2 boxed set (bought at Borders) in my cabinet drawer, maybe I'll fire that up on an old Compaq Prolinea 486 I have laying around.

I'd say more the former than the latter. Étoilé has gone from being both a desktop environment and a GUI development environment to just a GUI development environment: http://etoileos.com/downloads/
They're putting a hold on the desktop environment stuff until the underlying application frameworks are more settled. I suppose that's good, but it does seem like a step back from when they had a functioning desktop (albeit experimental and a bit unstable). There's nothing to look at right now. But I do think it has the best potential of all the desktop environments, if they can ever get it working right.
