A real slacker wouldn't post at all. Too much effort.

Hi,

I am a 'Slacker' by choice! A workaholic by others demands. Feed the beast!

Back in the LQ world!

I use both distros and i am satisfied. Why use Slackware? Because its out earlier and i think that its a bit more stable than Salix. Also Salix 14.1 xfce doesnt include a huge.s kernel and my old laptop has a non pae kernel.
PS: Dependency resolution can be easily disabled in Salix so this is not a reason.

Linux kernel will implement a code which will automatically to recognize those who steal from Linux,
then will automatically destroy all data, and self-destroy. :-)

And what is the relevance of your post to this thread? Next time, think before you post. It is not even funny.

A Slackware installation offers you the chance to start with a system that contains all the tools and the libraries you (may) need afterwards in case you want to add much more applications.
For example, i wanted to use the Lyx text editor. Compiled it from source and that was all – tetex was already there.

There are other times of course that you have to install some mandatory dependencies but i love the idea of a distro providing you from the begining with so many tools to make use of them as you wish.

This is not the case with Salix and it is okay cause they tell you they are following ‘the one application per task” motto. Now, when it comes in file structure, startup apllications, fstab, you can administer a Salix box the same as a Slackware if you want it that way.

It was a joke. But seems not appropriate one. I am sorry.

Regards

edit
