The enormous number of tests also made me like it a little less: it takes too long to install.

This statement made me pause. Why are a large number of tests a "Bad Thing"(tm)? I would think that more tests would imply better code. (I am not naive enough to think it ensures better good, but if two pieces of code were in front of me and 1 passed 100 unique tests and the other 1000 unique tests, I'd be more confident initially with the latter ...)

Plus, don't you install each distribution only once in a while?

We are the carpenters and bricklayers of the Information Age.

Please remember that I'm crufty and crochety. All opinions are purely mine and all code is untested, unless otherwise specified.
