To the reviewer, please install Ubuntu immediately, and stop reviewing Slackware without reading a little bit beforehand, and stop complaining about things not being automated, some people like it that way, maybe because the automation is trying to guess what I want to do and just can't.
I remembered adding a user to plugdev from when I tried out Gentoo, so that wasn't an issue to me. It seems that he likes lots of things to be automatic and that's fine, but for people who like to get their hands a little dirty, Slackware is ideal.
I guess he didn't use the arrow key when he adduser to his system it seriously adds the groups for you. Also did anyone else notice sound worked out of the box. Small but significant things in 12.1, I really am impressed.

When I first heard of linux it was slackware and debian. I'm sure there were more but they were the big ones. I couldn't for the life of me figure out the debian installer, and so my journey began with Slack. I should have sticked with it more through out the years, I maybe would be a more competent user.

Yes, I was that eager to get going, that I forgot the alsaconf and alsactl store steps, so it was quite a surprise to hear the KDE startup music. The sound seems cleaner, with a tighter, less muffled, bass too.
As for that article, everyone's entitled to their own opinion - even if it's the wrong one. Slackware suits me.
