I don't advise going there for help with slackware.

Don't take anything Dan C says personally and you'll do fine.

They'll try to shove kde down your throat

Slackware doesn't even start X by default--it's text mode unless you
deliberately configure it otherwise. This is quite the opposite of
"shoving KDE down your throat", I think most people would agree.

and as you can see, they aren't very nice people.

Nonsense! We have party whistles just like everyone else. (Except

The fact is, and if you study the docs I have posted here you will
discover this in short order, that there really isn't any difference
between one distro and the next.

This poster is a known troll and acts like some kid. He probably just
discovered Linux recently and posts this nonsense when he gets all
excited about a new command he's learned.
