  1. Uh, na na na naaaa!
    LOL I’m really tempted to check this out again. After all, once you figure out what applications you want for a task, who needs a package manager?

    I ditched Slackware once 10 was released and went the Debian route. Gave Ubuntu/Mepis/Opensuse/Fedora/PCLinuxOS a shot and eventually tried giving Vista a chance.

    Now that I do desktop publishing for my 9-5 with anytime access to my office, I think it’s time to go back and check Slackware out once again for my home web-dev needs.

    That and, well to be honest, I can’t find a reason to go back to that money pit called Apple.
