I do not think it really matters. The problem posting
had to do most likely with a misconfigured virtual

a set of chmod commands. Linux is Linux however you
package it. I am rarely completely satisfied with
default installation of any distribution and will want
to bring in a couple of packages and change some
defaults anyway, which I think is the case for most
