Slackware 12.0 Released

SyniK Re:Why? (286 comments)

Slackware, being a one man deal, is nice to see Linux as one man's vision. No committees involved or any compromise in the design, but it doesn't have the resources for something like apt... Apt is nice.

On a desktop system how often after initial setup and configuration (a week just to be sure?) do you need apt-get? When installing something you just learned about? Maybe once a month tops? So maybe you use it for system upgrades/updates? rsync'ing slackware-current and "find . -name *.tgz -exec upgradepkg *.tgz" does a fair approximation of it.

A quote about being easy from an obscure 80's movie...
"Quicker and easier. Yes, quick and easy is how you bake a cake or clean a toilet bowl or shop, by mail. But quick and easy is not how you run a multi-million dollar business such as ours (Perret)."

It's all just crap.  I think I'll get rid of it.  Anyone want a P200/P233 mmx?
