I will not be using Linux at all on the RPi for now.
I attempted to assemble a test program that I had ported over from RISC OS for testing, and lo and behold it bouught down the system with a Panic. Do not worrie, afterwords I attempted the same on Raspbian and got the same resaults .
If I can crash the OS by running gas I do not want it.
I still hope that some one picks up Puppy Linux.
