of course people told me so & it was nearly unbelievable, that is why
i did not reinstall when first time i heard about that.

 CRUX is the only Linux distro where, in Linux kernel, you have to
"enable" mouse (out of SOURCEMAGE, Gentoo, Fedora, BLAG, Frugalware,
Arch, gNewSense & some others i did not remember)

but every distro has different set of features & targets a particular
set of problems so it can not be said that one is bad & other is good.
