Last week I got very excited at the big update to Slackware-current. For one thing, KDE4 hadn't worked for me at all when it was in -testing ... BUT the partition I had Slack installed on was nearly out of space. So I fired up the GParted LiveCD ...

... and did something Very Bad (and also Very Very Stupid, considering I'd done it before and really should have known better): by deleting a small waste partition and attempting to shove things around so that Slackware would have more...

The much maligned CLI.

Posted 03-17-2009 at 09:33 AM by rich_c

I'm sure we've all seen comments in 'Is Linux ready for the desktop' type articles complaining about the command line... Of course, in reality, most current distros don't require users to go anywhere near the command line for pretty much any reason.
