insulting patrick


hey to all ,

i ve been insulting patrick and slackware for to much time now , i ve been using it as substitute distrubution for a long time now , till the last days i decided what the heck they are talking about the power of slackware so i spent nights and nights reading , configuring and playing with my slackware and then i finaly saw the light ,

slackware is easy fun , highly configurable and
- no i don't want it to be automatic more than this
- no for different package manager
- no for different system layout

from slack i am able now to be on the steps of beeing a power user not only in slackware ,but even in the m$ if u want a never ending learning curve for all u new slackers just go for it .

i just want to excuse myself for being registered as slackware user before

and sorry pat and thank u

wow that s relaxing

Anyone can do Slackware with some effort. I started using slack when I discovered Slack-based newbie-enhanced Vector. When I figured out the Vector admin script and discovered that all of tools were in Slackware already, I switched. It also helped that I was annoyed at Vector not letting me decide which packages I wanted.

well with the respect of the great Job on vector linux , i am like u , tweaked version are not enough for me anymore , why to have something ready , when u can do it ur own in ur own taste , slack is kind of LFS but without all these damn compiling u have to do .




with slackware i understood what linux is , meaning with some scripting and fecthing some Gui X u can have ManSlack
with removing some packages and kernel source u will have Damn Small Slack
but the opposit it s not true Imagine Mandriva decided to make it simple and not have to heavier load on their servers since mostly the bug fixes after their stable relase is more than 200 megs. all their developpers will be out of work though
hope they will beat M$ some time in the future

But for me M$ has lost since i booted slack for the first time and i did not know what to do ( startx u stupid ..

Yup, Slack loves tweaking and can be tweaked into any distro (excepting source based distros, of course).
