"A couple days ago, I reviewed Slackware 13.1. I wanted
to see if I could use it post-installation, though from what I had
read from commenters and writers on various blogs, it would be
tough. At the end, it did prove to be as tough (and for me,
fruitless) as I thought it would be. Though I did get to resolve a
network connection issue, there wasn't really a whole lot
interesting for me to see (other than a multitude of WMs in
essentially vanilla form). Anyway, I wrote and published the review
on this blog and it ended up in Linux Today and TuxMachines; owing
to that, it got a lot of traffic and comments, most of which panned
the lack of substance in the review.
"It seems like most people who happened upon the review expected
something substantive from a Slackware guru. Quite the opposite:
I'm essentially a newbie who simply enjoys trying out different
distributions from time to time. For letting down these readers
(which is also a function of a lack of context, because though I
make it clear on this blog that I am a newbie, that doesn't make it
to Linux Today or TuxMachines), I am sorry."
