Well my little butt-hurted friends i'm gonna, let's say own your arguments in the most "formal" way i can:
- Have been using linux for about 12 years, switched to slackware (7.0) from win98 with no problems, tested some other distros and stuffs and when a friend send me a Ubuntu (5.04) CD i installed it an hated it: was a pain in the ass to get a damn serial mouse to work, and after some days struggling with it i just wiped it and went back to slackware, some moths later founded out about puppy but didn't tested it 'till version 2.00 and when 2.15CE came out i just loved it and now after almost 6 years i still love it (lupu not included in the love part).
- Also tested kubuntu and some newer ubuntu versions, unfortunately they are just the same stuff, and i challenge you dear enemies, to go and try to update the base libs compiling them from source and enjoy your brand new brick.
- Why do i love slackware? simple: IT WORKS, you can update everything and it will keep working, and OBVIOUSLY because is one of the oldest still developed distros, and THAT gives you some sense of security, it is rock solid out of the box, and if you have a little bit of common sense and know how to read you can install it being a complete linux-noob. (i mean, c'mon, a friend's little brother (10) installed puppy by it's own and we are in Chile (South America if you are an ignorant fuck), according to some "North Americans" we are only good cooking mexican food and as cheap workers)
- Why do i hate the ubuntu fanbase? because of all the "I can't install Ares and Messenger!!1!!PLEASE HELP!!! double clicked the icon several times and nothing happened", not gonna write anything else because i'm being "formal" and if i type more i'll be cussing like a motherfucker.
WHY UBUNTU HAS MORE DOWNLOADS THAN SLACKWARE:
BECAUSE IT'S LIKE FUCKING WINDOWS BUT FOR PEOPLE WHO DON'T LIKE WINDOWS.
