Slackware, Slax Pat Volkerding has released Slackware 13.1. "We have chosen to use the 2.6.33.4 kernel after testing the 2.6.33.x kernel branch extensively. Slackware 13.1 contains version 4.4.3 of the KDE Software Compilation. Several Xfce components have been updated as well. Xfce continues to be a great lightweight desktop that doesn't get in your way. If you haven't looked at this great desktop environment lately, you might want to give it another try. If you prefer GNOME, there are teams online producing GNOME for Slackware."

I already understand things like dependency graphs and all that. I don't *enjoy* doing that stuff. When I use my computer, I want to enjoy it. I do enough platform level research all day long.

One question: did someone force you in using Slackware or even consindering something you don't like? I just try to understand your comment on this topic.

You really need to back off dude, you are getting extremely defensive over someone who is merely pointing out that he is not some kind of n00bcake because he asked what the differences between installing Slackware and Ubuntu/Fedora are and is understandably unsure about throwing a bunch of his time at learning the Slackware way just for the sake of learning it.

This is why people get turned off to using or trying any distro -- users who have way too much zeal over a software project.
