Calm down snowflake, nothing wrong with Lysander's post nor acknowledging someone for an intelligent well thought out comment.

There are a LOT of places in the Internet to do the political shit. I (personally) look at this forum as a place where we can help each other use a wonderful Linux distribution that has the name of Slackware and our politics are left outside.

Everyone needs a port in the storm.

Some people might have doubts or questions about the vision Pat embraces with Slackware. Those who do typically move on after their WTF experience. Those who remain typically are thankful about the design.

At work I use Debian (Proxmox), CentOS, and Ubuntu MATE. I am thankful I can work that way rather than use proprietary operating systems.

That said, as somebody eloquently noted, is Slackware doesn't have a lot of f-ckery. I use the distros at work, but I also have to add a lot of sweat equity to remove most of the f-ckery.

With Slackware I get a no frills base operating system. Yes, I add a lot of sweat equity to massage my systems. Yet I get to decide what kind of f-ckery I want and not what some upstream ivory-towered pinheads decide.

I am a realist. I accept that most computer users need the additional f-ckery. I'm happy I have a choice.

I admire and appreciate Pat's operating system. Slackware is straight forward and easy to configure. Slackware is stable and secure; it runs well on my desktops/laptops.
I started Slacking in 2004 with 10.0. It meets my needs.
