" I chose Slackware because I do not really like the so-called
'user-friendlyness' that you get with for example Suse or Redhat.
The main advantage of the Slackware distro is that it will only
run those programs that you really need. Especially Suse is good at
running a lot of stuff you don't need, without letting you know
about it. And, in my opinion, Slackware does no longer have to take
lessons where it comes to being user-friendly."
"I will guide you trough the most important steps of the
installation process until you have a running system. In the next
article, I will go on describing the actual configuration and
administration of a Sl"ackware system. Now, let's install it!"
