Masand's desire and Student04's answer


It is in reply to Masand's will and Student04's answer. Student04, I think Masand did not intend for cash awards.....it may me some other kinds also. By putting their name in the web site one by one or two, three, four.....etc. in a day. They would also be happy to take the warmth to be associated with this site. Prize need not be only cash or in kinds, afterall it is a voluntary site and every valuable members knows it well.
But how r u Masand?
My respected members, do u know who is masand? he is an expert in this trade and i think he is well associated with this site also. He helped me a lot to solve my problems i faced in linux.
May God bless this site........and special blessings to Masand, Student04 too otherwise I could not get chance to write this letter.

Clean package management.
Tagfile installs.
Clean file structure.


**Less than an hour for a manual install and customization for my desktops at work.
ie... open box... set on desk... connect to kvm... boot from cd with floppy in drive... partition hard disk and format... "setup" choose "tagfile" install. scp "build" files to new box and run script.

Hmmm, perhaps we will get an imaging solution.... but then again 1 hour aint half bad! ;-)

Slackware is the cleanest and most well built distribution I have seen. I started playing with linux in '97 so.... not an old hat hacker by any means. I started with redhat and played with others... when redhat announced the end of the non-pro product, I switched to mandrake.... which has it's own pros/cons. On a whim I downloaded Slackware 9.0 (i played with version 7 in 2000 I recall), when I popped the single install CD into the drive and ran the install with "full" (everything) I was amazed that it did not prompt me every few seconds for input. It finished in about 45 minutes.

I have run Slackware on my web server for about a year now.... and have re-installed all of my other boxen except 1 which I reserve for breaking (trying other distros)..... only problem is that I have not had much desire to play with other distributions since I started using Slackware.

It does force you to do some things in the true fashion rather than with a gui handicap.... but you can choose to install any type of gui utils that you want.... Slack is VERY open!

enjoy...

AmaroK's KDE-specific isn't it? xmms has been kinda coasting for awhile but it plays on anything. Didn't stop Konqueror (blech) from winning file manager and so on, but being desktop-specific can't help.

'Course, I'm a wm-freak, so maybe I'm just putting my own spin on it.

Its a very distro-neutral feeling. Not much in the way of auto configuration. Its all about setting it up yourself the way you want to. Has a very snappy feel to it. Even running the standard 2.4 up against debian with a 2.6 on the same machine. I know some gentoo users have 2cents to add to this, but compiling time vs. the performance outcome was a bit disappointing oh my system. Hence my vote for slack.

slackware is very much alive. check it out here:

http://www.slackware.com/

try it to see what it has over other distros. for me, it feels clean and everything is in it's proper place. there are no heavy customizations unlike other distros.

kde has always been much more popular than GNOME. I went from kde1.x ->gnome 1.2->kde 2.x->gnome 2.x->xfce4 myself. Good to see xfce get a lot of votes!

it would be cool to see what came in second in each category to know how much of a margin the first place app won by.

You can check the poll results in each category - they're visible now. No real nail-biters this year, though some were reasonably close. Couple-three of the usual landslides, too, of course.

I could never get amarok to play CDs right. Good for mp3's, etc.... but perhaps lacking in other places.

I will say that xmms is extremely buggy though... has a lot of plugins though.

Slackware does give one the feeling of being able to build a house with an axe, a hammer and a forest.
Ubuntu came in with a nice result for such a young distro - and it is well-deserved, in my opinion. One might stop to think who won, if we added together all the Debian spin-offs...
