That connects to the Internet, and opens Konqueror to http://wittyrpg.com on boot?

Depends on your definition of works. For 100% working it'd need Javascript and images, which cuts out quite a few browsers. Game! works more or less completely on the Wii, though text input is a bit awkward, but that's a platform limitation. It apparently also works well on (some) Blackberries, though I haven't seen that in person.

Konqueror is pretty lightweight, though. Much much lighter weight than Firefox, at least.

Konqueror is like... an order of magnitude lighter than Firefox (at least as far as the size of the codebase goes). I don't think tossing in kdelibs will make much of a difference.

I feel this might be an unpopular choice for REAL linux users, but I prefer Ubuntu. Feel free to mock me.

Ubuntu is good, but it always seems pretty unstable to me, at least in comparison to most other distros. Perhaps it's just Kubuntu, but I think Canonical is spreading themselves a bit too thin.

i'm using ubuntu simply because it was easy. it recognized all my hardware and only had a few basic apps. I have found it to be a bit unstable though at times.

Gentoo. I've been using it exclusively for so long I suck at using anything else. I'm seriously going to get a gentoo tattoo when I go to prison Wink.

I wonder why Gentoo users are so much over-represented here...

BTW, I have been using Linux since around 1994. I've been through Slackware, RedHat, SuSE, my-own-non-distribution (most of the time), but I have also been a Gentoo user for the last 3-4 years.

What's also interesting is that (based on the Apache logs) despite there being more Ubuntu users than Gentoo users (slightly, about a 4:3 ratio), the Gentoo users are the overwhelming majority in this thread. I won't comment on the reason for that (because I don't know for sure), but I have my suspicions.
