One disadvatage of Kanotix is its buggy GUI-based package installer, Adept, which crashes almost on every 2nd change you make

well, that is not a problem anymore, since the maintainer of Kanotix switched to the KPackage GUI installer. (Do i always need to quote myself ? Laughing)

After all, i prefer using plain apt/dpkg for installing packages, so that problem was never citical for me.

Another thing: I am currently doing some everyday-comparisions of XFS and JFS, but there is no clear winner yet.

Installed Kubuntu (Hardy Heron) here. Haven't tested yet how well it goes with FASM development though.

I've been happy recently with Arch Linux (it's simple as slack, but with a package manager (binary-based) and a good documentation and community.

I think asm folks should try it: http://www.archlinux.org

Arch is like gentoo, but you don't need to compile anything.

Debian and its derivates is also nice depending on the needs.

How is GNU/Linux not assembly friendly? I rather enjoy it myself. Much more than with Windows.

You don't have to use GCC. GAS works just fine. I use GCC when I'm interfacing with C, or any other languages. GCC is a great compiler.

Use FASM then. It is anti-terrible. Very Happy
Linux actually is assembly friendly OS. Most C/C++ libraries are not. But it is solvable problem.

And who does force you to use AT&T syntax? Both GAS and GCC know intel syntax.

that's otherwise when I tried it. I was warned that's AT&T-only. Maybe this is a new feature implemented in a recent version?

GCC inline assembly? Not sure.

AT&T is the worst syntax ever created in my opinion.


there is worse. Sometime ago I was reading older source codes for a lot of different machines and AT&T close to it,is "cool". The peoples really needed make to syntax a bit more "strage" to make the parsing more easy and don't use much memory,because in such epoch(as you already know) had not much available. A sorry but I don't have more the files.
