It's possibly the worst I've ever read, worse than those by She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. It's misleading, misinformed, misguided, and misbegotten.

Is it true that if you chant her name three times while standing in front of a mirror in a candle-lit room, the face of Anti-Bob will appear in the mirror?

Yeah, and Slackware's server goes down.

Sorry, can't name her. Last time I did, my hair fell out.
EDIT
Here's the kind of trouble she's caused in the past:

IMHO Slackware is very straight forward:

1) Boot the DVD
2) Setup your partitions (cfdisk makes it a very simple exercise)
3) Run setup and follow the instructions.
4) Reboot, run xorgconfig, and run startx.

Not too mention there is the slackbook that can guide you through the whole process.

Now where things can get a bit more complex is if you want to compile your own kernel to optimize your system--but this is true for all distros.

Cheers,
George

After all the distros I've used Slackware might be a bit "geekier" than the others but it is a lot easier to maintain.

BAHAHAHAHA! I had forgotten about that until just now. Thanks for drudging that up, Brian.

Just knowing of people like her makes me wonder why the aliens refuse to visit us here on Earth...
