The problem is that the system doesn't even start to load and when I tried and was able to have a functioning system, everything went belly up at each upgrade.
The last time, I wasn't able to make it work, so I went for the virtual machine.

Meh... Who cares about ubuntu... its all about Slackware! The next release should be done soon (I hope!). Anyways, even with Win7, my thoughts stay the same: Windows is only good for games and netflix.

He was making a pseudo-joke with regard to general difficulty of use.

That said, I never found Slackware a very hard distribution to use. Now, Gentoo on the other hand...

Gentoo isn't that hard either. I switched to Gentoo after just six months of using Linux. It took me two tries during the install but that was because I had to stop at a point that wasn't where I could restart easily so I started over.

The install is the hardest part but still not that bad. The rest is pretty easy.
