Outlining Thin Linux

vasilevich Re:Sounds like Slackware to me. (221 comments)

I used slack/freebsd as my desktop from 1999 to 2013... until i became a PHP programmer. such things as installing kwrite/gedit became very difficult. i like installing LAMP on slack/freebsd but in lubuntu/mint it is just one command... performance wise slack/freebsd is about 1.5-3x faster than mintxfce/lubuntu but the installations are very painful.
