"Not only is Slackware a more difficult distro to work with, it
does not have many of the fancy tools that you get with other
distros. You may be able to add them, but in reality it all is
easier to work with from the command line. The Broadcom 4312 is
notorious for being a real problem, almost impossible. In fact on
the Linux wireless site the wireless support is supposed to not
work, says it is in 'progress'. This at least explains why I wanted
to try it."
