Mint is better than Ubuntu. They are doing what Ubuntu should be doing. Slackware lets you have systems that make good desktops *AND* servers at the *SAME* time.

Yah. I used to use Slack up to a few years ago (I think it was my first), but then I somehow switched to Ubuntu, probably because I was trying to make a laptop work. Anyways, after just a few days back on Slackware (I imported my entire config in like an hour), I cannot believe I ever left. In comparison, Ubuntu is like a big bloated monster, and with a shittier attitude towards Free software, which is a big deal for me personally. (After reading these forums I figured that the only inscrutable parts of this release are the kernel blobs, and I think I can live with whatever Linus thinks is working.)

Beautifully spoken. I tried switching away from Slackware several years ago. It never really happened though. It never really stuck. I could not replace Slackware with anything. I was interested in trying new things and new software. I would just get frustrated and waste tons of time trying to do what was trivially easy in Slackware.

I spend less time than ever maintaining my computers and it's all because of Slackware. Now that Slackbuilds.org is around, we have more software than ever. It's easy and convenient. I've even taken on making my own builds and made a couple of contributions myself. I didn't dream about it or anything... just solving my own issues and sharing them.

It comes easily and naturally. The state of Slackware is better than it has ever been, leaving KDE 4 out of it, but that's not Slack's fault. Some of these simple things, like Slackbuilds, really help in building a community. I think Slackware's best days are ahead. It just keeps getting better for the users.

I like vintage pictures because they remind me of a time when people weren't so uptight about everything.

Not really vintage - that's a shot of Rachel in Blade Runner. But I guess it depends on your age whether it's vintage or not.

I'm not very old, 34, but I don't follow mainstream movies at all. Example: I've never heard of Blade Runner.

I study a lot... I work on cars, airplanes, motorcycles, my house, and writing better code, but I don't go to the movies like most folks.

I do watch some movies like spaghetti westerns. Clint Eastwood anything... I've probably seen those.
