I think that this thread is okay, it isn't overtly hostile. How is Ubuntu treating you, running well?

Heh, yeah, you're right! The point is still valid though, generally speaking.

Aknonadi/Strigi/Nepomuk being launched at startup without my will.

And the fact I have to set cyrillic fonts/keyboard mapping/ X keyboard language/encoding switching manually every time I install new release.

The official website contains (very) outdated information.

that's part of the legacy. if you want state of the (f)art websites telling all about the newest candy cane linux, go for the others

if you want to concentrate on LINUX and the thoughts behind it, keep things slack and simple. Slackware shalst not embrace the looks and feels of lesser distributions in favr of the windows pentiti who want to feel at rest in a cabdy cane style website.

Slack RULEZ!

Slack FOREVER!

Slack is the Uber Linux!

I hope you get the message now. :0)

I have no idea if you were trying to be funny or actually are that ignorant.

silly thread, silly answer.

what's the next LQ topic? Post anything you do not like about [protestantism, catholicism, budhism, islam]?

if you think slack is wrong, tell Pat. Don't start a silly revolution on LQ.

Sometimes moderators intervene when nothing is up. still, this [and similar] topics keep on polluting LQ.

Talking Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...

Just to let everyone know that I got lucky again this morning and although I am not sure how my Slack 13.1 is up and running... so thanks to all concerned for their part in giving me an operating system that's just what I need and want... LOL

ps this time I intend to try and find what the problem was... !

pps all life is a perspective when you describe things you describe yourself.

I don't like KDE 4. That's a subjective opinion, not a comment about whether KDE 4 is good or bad. KDE 4 reminds me a lot of Windows Vista and Windows 7 (that I also don't like). The user interface has gotten prettier, but more awkward. I find myself wasting more time clicking through menus, scrolling things, and trying to figure out how to change the settings to make things easier that I do frequently. I like the KDE color scheme in Slackware 13.0 a lot better than 13.1.

I would prefer that Slackware use GRUB as the default bootloader.

I would like the "dmraid" utility to be included in Slackware, and on the installation CDs.

I would like Slackware to include some working versions of the proprietary ATI and nVidia drivers (or at least test with them to determine compatibility). Pretty much any time that I've installed Slackware, the drivers from ATI or nVidia have required a lot of effort to get working.

My top KDE annoyances are these.

There is no way to add a menu panel category to the KDE menu. I have to switch to the classic menu for that.

The KDE settings for event notifications does not allow me to select all the effects and disable sounds. It also does not allow me to use the keyboard to scroll through and disable sounds. I have to do two mouse clicks plus scroll the window to disable each sound effect individually.

Creating desktop icons is not intuitive and they don't integrate at all with other window managers such as XFCE.

Browsing to network folders is also confusing, and I'm never sure exactly what to type in the file manager to connect to shares. There seems to be an assumption that the network browser (showing computers and shares) is available, and that is not true unless computers are in the same workgroup on the same LAN.

Previous versions of KDE consistently used share syntax like this.

smb://computername/sharename

KDE 4 requires something else, and it seems to be different for Dolphin versus Konqueror.
