Cool New Slackware User!!!


Ditched windows and jumped into Linux about 6 months ago with Xubuntu 64 bit. It was nice... got me used to the Xfce layout. I planed on using Slackware in the beginning but Xubuntu seemed less troublesome. I even played with Fedora Core for a bit. They weren't for me.

2 days ago I ditched Xubuntu (I don't like how they are taking features away from users like changing the GDM) and finally got Slack 13. After 2 days of learning new commands and compiling packages (open office, Xfce plugins, etc.) I got an amazing setup! Slackware is the best distro I've ran so far and I'm pretty sure I'm going to stick with it.

I used some of the topics here while setting up... VERY helpful. Needless to say you can expect questions from me in the future!

Hello fearfactory and welcome to LQ

Sounds like you're getting along just fine and maybe will be answering more questions than asking!
