6G... I get OS/2, Win3.1, Lotus SmartSuite, PC Dos7, and Linux or FreeBSD and
X and OpenOffice in 4gb without disk compression on an IBM 760XL laptop.

Linux is all in how you install it. Default's a pig. (Especially Mandrake
and Redhat...)

Free/OpenBSD are much better at packaging the OS seperate from the apps...
and add-ons.

Linux is getting to look like Windows2k... overloaded with stuff you
never use and without the stuff you need.
