First, I don't think openoffice should come bundeld in a standard distro. Openoffice adds about 150MB. If I don't want openoffice, then I shouldn't have to download it, or install it.
I agree with the article, duplication of applications such as browsers, does not serve a purpose other than creating a clutterd, confused, and bloated distro.
My experience with slackware:
- installing dropline-gnome was a cinche, download, then enter two lines, something like:
installpkg dropline-gnome . ..
I just worked.
- Seems impossible to install gnucash.
- The wheel on my mouse still doesn't work.
- CUPS didn't work at all, I just get an error message.
- I don't understand the reasoning of having sound muted.
- Lilo wouldn't install, I had to boot from floppy and do a liloconf.
- I have Win2K installed on the same system. The windows gui is much more snappy than gnome. Gnome blurs and leaves trails.
- Plays DVDs very well, better than windows, IMO.
- During the install, I specifically chose no games, but with gnome, I get about 15 games, like it or not.
