New Slackware User!!!

Ditched windows and jumped into Linux about 6 months ago with Xubuntu 64 bit. It was nice... got me used to the Xfce layout. I planed on using Slackware in the beginning but Xubuntu seemed less troublesome. I even played with Fedora Core for a bit. They weren't for me.

2 days ago I ditched Xubuntu (I don't like how they are taking features away from users like changing the GDM) and finally got Slack 13. After 2 days of learning new commands and compiling packages (open office, Xfce plugins, etc.) I got an amazing setup! Slackware is the best distro I've ran so far and I'm pretty sure I'm going to stick with it.

I used some of the topics here while setting up... VERY helpful. Needless to say you can expect questions from me in the future!

Hello fearfactory and welcome to LQ :)

Sounds like you're getting along just fine and maybe will be answering more questions than asking!
