RE: Gimme some slack

I intentionally left out Windows because I didn't want to start a religious war.

You are 100% correct - not everyone needs the latest stuff or all of what I mentioned. That's why I recommended an additional installation option. Don't use it if you don't like it.

I never said editing a config file was bad, I would just more centralized admin to make my life easier when administering a few systems. Ergo Webmin. I actually said I do NOT like custom config utilities - read "redhat-config-foo".

My Slackware system IS my web server AND my main desktop system, except for gaming, which is what XP is for: a glorified XBox.

I really DO like Slackware. I just wanted to share my experiences with my favorite distribution. Just because I don't like some things doesn't mean the whole thing is bad. It's better than my experiences with Red Hat, that's for sure; I just had to have the time to learn Linux first.

Thanks for your reply.
