Slacklet - a new OS Mod Proposal

If you have read my other post, you'll know I want to install GNU/Linux onto a Tablet PC. I've thought about it long and hard and think that Tablets really deserve an OS design for them.

I propose a Slackware Tablet - Slacklet.


Slackware is simple to manage and it's the OS I prefer.

Real-world Justifications?

A standard Windows desktop is useless - My point of view.

Posted 01-04-2010 at 06:51 AM by rich_c

I read a blog post recently with the above title. While I agree with the sentiment, the detail of the post doesn't cover my reasons for thinking the standard Windows desktop is useless. they are as follows.

Take, for example, any out of the box Windows install as compared to any of the top Linux distros from DistroWatch. Install them pretty much as default and apply any updates. Now which do you suppose you could immediately start working with? I'll allow myself one negative...
