I don't know which to blame Osnews or Slackers for not posting any picture. I'm sure 90% of readers doesn't care because it has xkdfsuperstar5000.1 and other parts which can only pronouced thru the nose. Unfortunatly for me most Linux distros introduced with only words are like puddle of sick, bits of a lunch, a breakfest and the snacks from bar mixed in soup. I'm sure most of you can point out that I been eating Chorizo 1.5 rather than spicy 2.7xka, but I can't. For me picture of Sheppards Pie tells more that saying it ingridients, but then again for you I'm just a hungry troll.

I translated the above to english (with Babelfish), and I think he wants more screen shots, although another possible interpretation involved meat trays.

That, or he's trying to take the title of "Least-coherent OSNews Poster" away from Moulineuf.

I don't see how screen shots of BASH or KDE will tell you any more about Slackware than it would about Kubuntu or Arch + KDEmod.

At the end of the day, screen shots mean jack shit about Linux distro's unless said distro ships with it's own unique desktop environment (which none do).
