Slackware was EASIER to install than UBUNTU or Mint or Debian.
It's nice to hear someone say that.
Slackware's reputation of being difficult to install is wholly undeserved and, I think, results primarily from its not offering to partition the HDD automatically.
I found it very easy to install--so easy, I installed it three times on that first day! (because I didn't get it right, not because of anything Slackware did.)
