I supposed that your addiction isnít related to the bare MS Windows but you use some applications for MS Windows.

My advice: play the games for Linux without 3D or donít play them at all. Itís usually a huge waste of the time. And using MS Windows is immoral.

The sentence that you quoted is related to the sentence that you skipped. I trained my wit all my life so I can easily grasp the wit by the occasional joker.

Maybe you could expand on that a little...

No, seriously you shouldn't need to justify that, I don't use windows, except at work, but I know people that do and I know that they are not brainwashed idiots, but educated people who are perhaps not as interested in computing as we are here at LQ...

Microsoft sells useless systems while the Open Source community offers useful systems for free. The similar case is with the applications.

Itís easy to earn the money but to spend them on something useless is immoral.

I also like dark chocolate, in fact, with more than 90% cocoa. You like bananas?

Thanks for the explanations of Slackware's inner workings, although I am not sure I understand. I am having trouble wrapping my computer-incompetent brain around the concept. If I have a remote understanding of your explanations, Slackware installs applications that just sit there and do not interact with system, unless they are activated.

I use Slackware because it is stable.
I use Slackware because it is durable.
I use Slackware because it is flexible.
I use Slackware because it is venerable.
I use Slackware because it is reputable.

I use Slackware because it was there at the beginning, when things were fun, and fresh and new.
I use Slackware because Pat V. is still in charge of it.

nuff said.

Well in Debian if you install libblablah.so it just sits there doing nothing - taking up a bit of space on / and that's it. If you install e.g. networkmanager however it will install and enable the networkmanager daemon and this will run at boot. In the case of Slackware, installing networkmanager does not mean that it will run at boot. The user has to enable the daemon - so like libblahblah.so it's just taking up space until you enable it.
