before I decided to go with slack I tried lindows. I downloaded an ISO SP2 and It was pretty flaky, so I gave it DAS BOOT and said hello to Slackware 8.1

First of all - you german sucks
I really don't know what is that bad about lindows that everybody feels the need to beat them up.They try to make a buck thats all.Have a look at libranet.99.- US$ for debian with a gui installer and a bunch of updated software - why is nobody whining about that?
