Good review. I do think, however, that TC is very good at being always available when travelling. I made it my main distribution on any "foreign" PC (my desktop uses Arch, my server Debian): I use it at work instead of Windows; I use it on family PCs (siblings, step-parents…) instead of Ubuntu, Windows, whatever…; I even use it at home on the laptops instead of Arch and Mint ;)

hi theYinYeti,

i agree, usually i use on business debian on servers, workstations and laptops,
for private purposes i love to use core on my own and some "foreign" PCs.

i enjoy to use core with fluxbox for
mailing, browsing, printing, different kind of grafics, wordprocessing, vnc through ssh, tunneled internet connections, disc-burning, repairing systems, clone and backup, ftp, databases, multimedia, scanning my networks, virtualization, voip, sync, scanning and so on.
i'm a bit proud about my lean backup.tgz, it is less than 1,4 mb :-)

is there something left that i need for daily life?
i have no idea ;-)
