See the "Summary/thoughts on Rule" message. Porting slinky from
Fedora to another anaconda/rpm distro is probably less work than
porting it to something else.

The main drawback for desktop end users is that Centos is mainly
used for server work, so they may not find as much support from
the centos mailing list as they could on Fedora or other distro
more used as desktops. Then again, since one would not do use
an old pc anyway to do multimedia editing or 3-D games, just
SOHO stuff, it may not be a big deal.

I have troubles (on my ISP site...) connecting to the website, I'll enable
the account asap and add the book module that C.D. requested asap, sorry.
