I think Openbox would be a nice addition to the preinstalled WMs.

mono and systemd... but only after I've had my eyes clawed out by a rabid gerbil and then fed feet first through a chipper.

Just thought of another I'd like to see:
sbopkg

Again in /extra would be fine.

Thumbs up Happy with the say things are already, but for others....

I don't really have any requests for additional packages. SBo takes care of most of that for me, and what it doesn't, I can create my own packages.

But I listen around, and what I hear from a lot of people is that they like to deploy sudu Linux because their semi-computer-literate users or staff can have a familiar experience out of the box with apps that are akin in nature to what they're used to.

For me, I find that concept rather repulsive. If I want a wYNd0z3 like experience then I'll fire up wYNd0z3.

That having been said, two things come to mind:

  • sbopkg
  • LibreOffice
The first item, again, is a non-issue for me. I just go and get it as part of my standard setup.

The second item, would make things a bit more streamlined for those folks who feel that a potential Linux convert needs a "Familar" experience.

um...

Well wait a minute. Maybe I'd rather see Dovecot instead of UofW.

Yeah, I think I would prefer that.

Oh, and one more thing... I think we should dump MySQL and have MariaDB as part of the base instead.

The nice part about that is, that no one would even know it unless they looked under the hood - I despise EllisonCo.

I hope that helps

Kindest regards,

I agree on the inclusion of fakeroot. It prevents mistakes when working on your own SlackBuild scripts, since you aren't really root.

Also agree with the requests for sbopkg and network manager even if they only made it into extra.

Finally, if it does get to the stage where KDE is dropped then the components to create a nice LXDE desktop would be appreciated to give an alternative Desktop Environment to Xfce.

Oh ... And of course Opera! Though I admit I am totally biased on this last point.

Postfix and Dovecot would be nice. And I surely wouldn't complain about having PostgreSQL also.

But mostly I'm very pleased with the packages selected by the Slackware team. And as long as there's a slackbuild script to be found, I can just build the software myself. YAY! for slackbuilds.org and sbopkg.
