Why is it every time I attempt to post something informative about 
Slackware I get shit like this from Debian users? If you don't like 
Slack, fine. Refute it with a real argument about merits, not some 
logical falacy like this where a comment is taken out of context.
Read the entire email. The design differences about the config file 
was meant to say there is no "linuxconf" like program, just small 
programs for some specific configurations, like networks. The design 
differences also included the /etc/rd.c structure and lack of PAM.
Really, the attitudes I am seeing on these lists at times are half 
the reason I never bother to go to meetings even though they are 
only a few blocks away from me. I'm not the only one amongst my group 
of CS grad friends who have the same opinion. Something to ponder.
