My Linux Experiences- Slackware.Submitted by Regnad Kcin on Tue, 01/28/2014 - 06:02
I have been playing around and working with various flavours of Linux.
My present system for Linux is an old Dell machine that our lab got as a part of a package buy of used office equipment from a firm that was leaving town.
Now I have installed Slackware Linux on it and am running the XFCE desktop.
It is fast. It is beautiful. It is powerful.
Slackware does have a bit of a learning curve to it but it was not too difficult.
I just loaded the new version of Chromium the open source browser.
I tried Kubuntu first and noticed that it got slower and slower as I used it so I trashed that and went with Salix because I was still a bit leery of Slackware. Finally I got fed up with that because it is incomplete.
Slackware has not crashed or froze up yet.
There is life beyond Windows.
