Every mission has been solved

- Dual boot with GRUB2 for Mint and Win8 - check! - I did not even ask Mint installation to do it or had to do anything on my end. Mint installation did it automatically

- Try Enlightenment Desktop Environment under Mint - check! - I opened sofware manager, found it, installed it and I learned that I must first log out and then choose Enlightenment and then log back in. But at the moment Enlightenment appears to be somewhat buggy.

- Try to access the Windows partition from Mint - check! but I can only access the data partition. I cannot access the partition with Windows installation in it, but as long as I can access the other partition that is fine

- Put a beautiful photo of a model in the GRUB screen - check! a program named Grub Customizer did it

I wish people would stop giving out advice like that. If you're of average intelligence, want to learn, can read and follow instructions, and can think for yourself occasionally - then Slackware is not all that difficult.

While I would,kt call Slackware difficult to install it does pose problems like manual partitioning (which the advice and instructions seen always seem to complicate) and setting the locale in both the terminal and the DE which other distributions deal with for you. Those being just the two things that readily spring to mind as not being simply following instructions but needing background knowledge.
