Never a hold your hand distribution will Slackware be.
It's difficult to get things done, if someone is holding your hand
Life is much better when you do things yourself - if you know how or want to know how.
To change a config file without seeing a silly warning that you mustn't change it directly but go searching in a menu for a graphical interface to do it.
To install programs directly, via slackbuilds or src2pkg, without having to wait for someone else to have compiled it (if ever) with their assumptions about the options you want..
.. which lead to bloat, because some options increase unecessary dependencies.
A system of directories which hasn't been made more unfriendly in the name of user friendliness.
Oh, this is stupid - I'm preaching to the converted
Anyway - as I've just found out while testing another distro - once you've settled down with slackware, you won't be happy with the "valet" distros.
The so-called comforting hand of some other distros becomes a restraining hand. it feels like hand-cuffs.
