Slackware, Slax There are different reasons people use Unix-like operating systems, including configurable, availability free of charge, powerful command line interface an many more. Some people are motivated by the moral issue: they reject non-free software. Specifically for such users Free Software Foundation developed Guidelines for Free System Distributions and created the list of absolutely free ("as in freedom") distributions. In this article we are going to look at the most recent entry on the list - Parabola GNU/Linux.

App developers work damn hard to keep their skills up to date, and to write quality, bug free software.


Like...Skype and Kazaaaaaaaaa and comet cursors and bonzai buddy? ;)
Just pulling your leg though...

But there's room for both types of software, and to rule out things like device drivers is totally nuts.


Yeah, this thing annoys me too. I use almost only FOSS software but if someone wants to sell their closed-code for profit that's none of my business. I'll probably never buy their product in a million years but that's my choice.
