Thumbs up

Thank you. I noticed the Slackware thing when I first got here and was intrigued that slackers like me warranted their own OS I also noticed that everyone using that OS is by no means a novice. I look forward to testing it out when I lose my green horns. Z/Z

What are you talking about? Move to SlackWare once you feel too comfortable in Mint. Otherwise be prepare to spend hours under the hood of your OS.

Good luck to you.

Just about everyone I saw who was strong with the Force on the forum uses Slackware so I sorta got the impression that a strong Linux background was necessary to grasp it.

I have two perfectly professional goals that involve analyzing and accessing wireless networks which I am told can be done from any distro of Linux BUT I am positive that someone posted that Slackware is not technically Linux because it uses a different Kernel(?)... don't quote me on that... I may have misread or the person may have mis-posted.

In any case... well... since you think it is a good idea... I guess doing a little research on it couldn't hurt. Z/Z

depending on the performance of your computer you can try out all of the different os'es thru vbox where you can the feel & also the learning experience. In any given linux distro there can & will be a learning experience, it's just at what rate do you want to be forced to learn, installing & playing around & learning with different os'es is better in a controlled environment like vbox.

Damn! Nobody said I could list my entire OS history in my forum profile Can I list C64, COCO 3, ms-dos and win3.x ? 95, 98, 2000, xp, not vista and 7. My lappy is not too old, has 4 gigs ram and i3 core processor.. does most things except graphics acceleration well... bought a decent 16-bit usb sound card to compensate for the integrated sound. Twin netbooks, same specs different battery, 1.66 Atom and 1 gig ram... noticed that videos can get choppy on netbook so thinking of putting in Linux sooner than later to compensate.

Multiple linux distros in a vbox is an awesome idea. Thanks Z/Z
