I have used Slackware on a few machines, and it never takes me 3 days to get a fully working system. To be fair, maybe this guy just wasn't ready to represent Slackware due to his own knowledge/skills.
Distribution: slackware64 13.37 and -current, Dragonfly BSD
Yeah - admittedly my 'test' box install of Slack 12 rc1 took about an hour to get X,wireless and sound setup correctly but only because I am used to it by now. Also the 'Slackware' guy is running XFCE which I find too minimal - I just love KDE. I am probably going to get ripped to shreds by the minimalist window manager crew but whatever - to me KDE looks so nice !! (yes - I do a lot from a bash terminal but for some tasks a gui is far more productive - lets be honest !!) - Oh - and I like shiny looking things
When I browsed the Debian web site, I didn't get the impression they were hippies, more like civil servants or bureaucrats - with this Policy & that Policy. Slackers are much more easy going. Hang loose, man, get Slack!
(flame war brewing??? )
