The above is my one word description of Slackware.

But if I'm allowed even more words to describe, then comes:

stability, security, **simplicity** , Slackware absolutely freakin does not resist or fight **my customization** -- just make Slackware into what I want it to be

"It's Slackware, **do** what you want."

Thank you Slackware developers and congratulations and keep on steering the direction that future OSS development will take.

I'm interested to help support Slackware regards said steering. I can write. Please let me know if I can help in any way.

Sometimes *others out and about out there* just need (as the future may tell) some dauntless steering or direction regards future pathways to be taken.

Long Haul
Alan.
Ah, perhaps you can write, but I am not convinced that you are able to write clearly in English.

# yes!, further below comes the next key (or is it hot potato?) item: ***Ah, perhaps*** you can observe clearly, objectively, and keenly as seen by your response's relevance. But I am not convinced that . . .

Oh darn. Language Arts. You caught me in the act. I do not always display that I can write clearly in English.

I'd merely expressed about my own experience with Slackware. And I'd said that people can influence which also is sometimes expressed as "making a difference." Moreover, I tried to be supportive of the Slackware team in their being influential. Lastly, as I do in many of my posts, one never knows when a passion (for Slackware) may spread to the newbie. Oh, and one little freakin term from the 60's found its way in there too.

Aha there, I invite you to attempt to engage me into conversation by starting another thread; I suppose it would need to be in the Language Arts or the Off Topic forum. Or, heaven forbid, if it were to be in the *English* Language forum here at Linuxquestions. You can link to that thread from here.

Please note that I've a locked compartment entitled "Engage," once opened, you're on. What you say will be the key that either switches my engage mechanism to on or fails and leaves it locked or off.

Ah, perhaps (kindly observe that I just replicated ***your own very first two words up there!!!*** -- . . . Anyways nonetheless, (here we go folks <grin> and <grin>)

***Ah, perhaps*** you can observe clearly, objectively, and keenly as seen by your response's relevance. But I am not convinced that what you and I now have here is not a microcosm of the so called politics or political matter that this thread's original subject or topic line itself is about.

I'll now take the liberty for myself to borrow from Larry Wall; he's a linguistic and the creator of the Perl language.

Larry Wall has said "Everyone wants the colon."

And, most certainly, please do make of that what you will. After all, it's everyone's right to do so.

A definition often follows a colon. So I deem Mr. Wall's statement as having copious relevance to politics.

By the use of politics, I see a means with which to attempt over time to get one's way.

By everyone wanting the colon or otherwise wanting the power with which to define, I see a means with which to attempt over time to get one's way.

English is living; it changes over time.

Yep my post was a bit indirect. But it expressed enthusiasm for Slackware and for those who develop Slackware.

If you had just only wanted a quick grasp of what my post was about then why did you even read it? What is wrong with you that you had the time to read my post?

<grin>

Alas, I suppose that post of mine was a bit on the condensed side; I was a bit indirect whilst I'd also stated that I can write.

Good food for fodder. Thanks.

Alan.
