Is considered heresy to use sbotools and slackpkg plus?


Is considered heresy to use sbotools and slackpkg plus?

Exist other tools that are considered heresies according to the philosophy of Slackware?

If so, what are the other tools that are considered heresies according to the philosophy of Slackware??

I'm talking about other unofficial tools that were developed to make Slackware easier to use.

Slackware is not a religion.

Please do not start again a thread with no practical purpose in this forum.

I suggest that you request a moderator to move it to General.

I installed Debian 9.2.1 i386 and I posted this topic and this message using Debian!

The graphical interface that I'm using is XFCE!

This just illustrates that your questions are pointless, even more so here.

I will stop answering now and truly hope that no one else will feed this troll.

I said this because on another topic some people asked me if I installed Slackware and Minimal Linux!

Please, sorry me!

Yes, anything that makes Slackware easier to use is considered heresy. That includes bash, X, gcc, and any web browser. The purists among us actually create all the hardware and software for our systems from scratch every couple years.

And a REAL Slacker does it just using
Code:
echo [terminmal output] > ./[file being built]

So why do you pester us and not the people who use Debian?

Surely you have idiotic questions that you can ask them, don't you?
