My thoughts on Slackware 12.0 *

,----[ Quote ]
| The installation of the NVIDIA driver for my platform went off without a
| hitch. *There aren’t a great many games for GNU/Linux yet, but there are a
| few to choose from when the desire to game hits me, and if the native
| GNU/Linux games aren’t enough, WINE works wonders. *I can generally play more
| games designed for windows than a Vista user. * *

| Though Slackware takes a little bit more effort than many other operating
| systems to get set up and working, it is well worth the effort. *I have found
| my new favorite OS. *

Slackware, the Un-Buntu

,----[ Quote ]
| Once again, Slackware is supposed to be complicated and hard to manage, but
| this experience proved to be different -- and very satisfying. In the Xfce
| printer settings, I selected CUPS to manage my printing. Then I went to CUPS
| configuration in the Slackware menu. *

Slackware: old warhorse is going strong

,----[ Quote ]
| The last time I looked at Slackware was nearly seven years ago; version 7.1
| was thrown my way by a magazine and I was asked for a review. My usage of the
| distribution had ended early in 2000 when I moved to Debian after using
| Slackware 4.0 and then 7.0 for about a year. *

| I guess Slackware will have its band of loyal users; it has some good points
| and a certain kind of people like their Linux the way Volkerding has designed
| the distribution. Had the upgrade process been less cumbersome, who knows, I
| might still be using it. *

Slackware: Secure all the way back to 8.1

,----[ Quote ]
| Slackware provides security updates all the way back to version 8.1 along
| with 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0 and 12.0, so if there is a reason
| you're using an older version of Slack, it is still being supported by the
| distro's creator, Patrick Volkerding and his team. *

Slackware: There's something totally sane about it

| Did I mention that configuring CUPS printing for my difficult-to-dial-in
| networked printer was easier in Slackware than in anything else I've tried?
