I thought the point was to *not* have a browser monopoly - of any browser?

I use mozilla, myself, but that still gives the 'Mozilla Foundation' 86% of the OSS browser market here at the LQ Polls. I think that's plenty. Not to say we don't need to be taking IE numbers down and pumping up firefox and others generally, but the MF monopoly in OSS is about as bad as the MS monopoly in proprietary software.

(I know some of these questions and complaints aren't entirely serious, but still...)

I'm kinda surprised XMMS is still so popular though it's so "ancient". Why didn't y'all vote for amarok
Beep Media Player makes a nice replacement for XMMS (a Gtk2 fork of XMMS, with some improvements). I don't always want all the bells and whistles on top

Congrats to all winners!

I knew this was a Slackware-ruled forum since the very beginning! They don't have a forum at their site and that's why they infest linuxquestions.org! (just teasing)

Go Ubuntu! Whoever wants to try Ubuntu and hasn't I suggest wait for the new version 5.04 Hoary which will come out in May..It will be 10 times better than Warty! Which is already cool...

No real "apps" here.
Examples could be:
Best money manager,
Best calandering application,
Best asset management and call booking software,
Best bulletin board package (including what runs this site).

I mean, no core apps to really get the lay person using Linux.

End

Yes, I wonder who'd win that one!

What has Slackware got?

Try stability, ease of use (for administrators), simple package management, works on x486 and up processors, plus a few others.

I just wish the Gnome people would have made Gnome a bit easier to integrate rather than KDE (which is Pat's favorite desktop), but there are several projects that port Gnome to Slackware.

So far, every machine I've thrown at Slackware (from the aforementioned x486 and up) have not had any stability problems once hardware issues are settled.

To give you an example, I've got a hand-me-down (from my mom) 200mhz/48M ram Compaq Presario running Slack 10.1 with kernel 2.6 (Currently, it's my weberver test bed for things I'm trying out), a 166MHz machine running a 3-card router (Internet, DMZ, and local network) running Slack 9.1, and a dual-pentium 333MHz machine running Slack 8.0 (our main local server).

I also have Slack 10.1 running on my dual-monitor 1.6GHz machine at work, a 1.2GHz machine at home, and my HP laptop. No problems with installs and runs sweet on all machines.

alisonken1 - I don't know if you have realised, but this thread is for the 2004 LQ Members Choice awards. If you want to extol Slackware's virtues, we have an active Slackware forum. Or you could put it in the Member's Success Stories forum.

uhhh... I hate to call a "moderator" on something... however I have to jump in and defend this guy. He was answering a question. I understand the need for moderation but come on. Is moderation supposed to smack people down because they "extol" aka answer peoples questions!? Should he have responded with a simple RTFM? Is the hard drive filling up? Is he spamming the forum? Nope... just answering a question. I thought this was a "user" forum....

Besides which.... how many people do you think care about these results anymore at this point?

anyone anyone???

So let's take a look at the date stamp of the original question: Sunday, February 6th, 2005 - it's now September 9th. he revived a thread which hasn't been touched since April - one more month and it would have gone to the archives.

mindmerge, I don't think the member was "smacked down" at all. XavierP simply pointed out how old the thread was - and you'd be surprised how many people respond without looking at the date and then are appreciative when someone points it out.

Ahh... I see, said the manic-depressive man. How long til it goes in the archives now that we have made it even more active!? ;-)

I apologize Xavier.... I spoke off the cuff and must have been in a combative mood or something.

coolio...

Jeremy, I apologize. Smacked down was a bad choice of words. Xavier was also noticably more gentle than other moderators I have experienced in the past. He did not deserve my ire.... nor my attitude...

I will sulkingly go back to my room.... and come back only when I have something useful to contribute.
*Disclaimer*:
This is not to say that I will not feel free to leach the LQ ISO's repository nor peruse the Slackware Forum! ;-)

I apologize once more XavierP.... and Jeremy... keep up the good work... LinuxQuestions.org is an awesome resource.
