slack 3.4
by BjÝrn on Mon 12th Apr 2004 11:00 UTC

Slackware 3.4 was my first linux... it did try 3.6, but havenít tried it after. That some years ago.

What linux need to get into the desktop/common people, is
-standards, not just one web browser but
1. Install program.

2. Have the same files and directories one problem that you find is like this http://macromedia.rediris.es/rep_ri.html how many hours do macromedia spend on supporting distros??

3. Common configures tools. When I read one manual for setting up a program, it must work on linux (linux is all distros) and you have this lpi (http://www.lpi.org/en/lpic.html) and http://www.redhat.com/training/rhce/courses/ redhat and linux+ and sagre (?) well the thing is that if you an rhce and learned to setup samba by there gui, you cant find the same gui on mandrake and debian donít have a gui too for it.


If you have a look at distrowatch "Currently, there are a total of 280 Linux distributions in the database." [1]

Whatís wrong with linux then??
