    @zioinc WTF – Dumbass BS. “anything debian based” has got to be one of the stupidest comments I’ve read, Ubuntu sucks IMO and that’s a safe statement IMO given the bloat of the OS that it is now, but Mint Debian is a very fast, stable, and awesome OS based on the Debian kernel (I’ll admit, still ignorant to Linux vs. OS X and Windows). Interesting stuff, but Debian is the shit for a fast and quality GUI Linux system, I know that Im digging Mint Debian (fuck Ubuntu), but dig the vid!

    @Rib5 if your running ubuntu and unity, just check out how much of your system resources are actually being used just for unity. last i read, unity consumes somwhere around a gig. so between 25 and 50 megs, maybe not such a big deal. but those arent the numbers were dealing with lol.

    I love Linux don’t get me wrong I use Mint myself but Linux isn’t the only OS with a terminal function. Just open your windows 7 menu and type CMD in the search bar, click on it whalla a DOS based terminal that can do all the stuff windows 7 can normally do plus more sans the GUI.

    I’m going to try slackware so I can learn a little bit more about how linux works. Having said that, from this video it seems like most of the reasons why slackware is better (ie 1-3) are not as important if you have a fast computer. Does it really matter if something uses 50 Mb RAM as opposed to 25 if you have 4000 available?

    You know why Slackware based Distros (Slackware, OpenSUSE, etc.) and Debian based distros (Debian, Ubuntu, MEPIS) the keyboard doesn’t work ? It’s a laptop.

    Do Slackware based distros like Zenwalker and Salix os have these 5 advantages too? I’m thinking of installing Salix OS since it stays close to Slackware, but I wonder if I’ll be able to do the same things as with the default slackware

    I’m trying out linux distros and because of this vid I put slack on my have-to-try list. I’m using debian and I’m actually liking it better than windows. I’ll probably fully switch to Linux after I graduate college because windows is required for the course that I’m taking. right now I’m on a dual boot basis.

    @zioinc Thats pretty cool. I am thinking about playing around with it to see if I can use it without a gui. I also have game called Dominion 3 and I am wondering if I can get it to work with slackware with the command line. I cant do that in Ubuntu through the command line. I either dont know how to or it cant be done lol. I would perfer to try slackware to see how good it is. Right now Ubuntu crashes every once in awhile on my laptop. if slack ware will work better I figure why not use it.

    Slackware 13.37 uses the 2.6.37.6 Linux kernel (hence our new $SLACKWARE_VERSION.$KERNEL_VERSION naming system used for this release ;-)

    Can somebody tell me what kernel is slackware using? I might use it if somebody can give me a link how to compile it and use it. I like the fact that it has no gui because I can learn more about command line with it.
    sorry for the repost

    slackware & dabian both shares a same kernal, the only difference is slack not makes much changes where others are

    @zioinc In your opinion. If a user uses a Debian based OS and it suits their needs, why use something else? It makes no sense….

    I use slackware since 1992 and verified that it was the best OS on this planet.

    There is no better/best… Each distro is built for specific needs. And this is coming from someone who has been using Slackware since ’98.

    All I see is some douchebag who has no idea what he’s talking about trying to look cool for his friends that get wet from seeing simply python command lines.
