Slack was cool, but CentOS offers a much smoother desktop experience...
Besides I don't have to update her system aymore, now she can yum it herself :)

That I don't know, it just seemed weird that someone wanted to this when
they could just as well use CentOS... or WBEL or whatever... What intrigued

they aren't doing it being driven by the Open Source principles... They just 
want to 'buy a free Linux'...
