Slackware 11.0 on 450Mhz K6-2, 256Mb

A couple of years ago, when I was just getting started with Linux, I tried Slackware and managed to get a chunky old laptop online with a wireless network card. In that case, Slack pulled off something I hadn’t had any luck making happen in other distros.

I wanted Slack to work this time too, but it didn’t happen that way. After three installations and a couple of hours spent, I decided I’d do better trying something else.

I know Slack has a strong following, and I respect that. It’s possible that this was just the wrong machine to be trying new things on. And like a lot of people, I had expectations that I didn’t take the time or didn’t want to unravel. That’s normal human behavior, I guess.

But I can’t mask my disappointment any more than that.
