Re:But Slackware already runs on old hardware

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on June 05, 2006 11:09 PM
I think if the STX Linux is easier to install than Slackware (I've tried installing slackware and it can be frustrating) then STX Linux serves a real world purpose for getting older hardware to a point of usability again. While I enjoy technology and learning, I would like to see Linux start to shine as an operating system for all. I get tired of hearing people complain because someone is expected to know the ins and outs of the system. I think that Linux in general has serious potential for widespread open desktop use, and it would be nice to see the end of bigotry and bickering about issues concerning Linus use. I will try this TSX Distro and see how easy it is to use for a newcomer. I think that if STX Linux is an intuitive, easy to use product, but yet provides the tools for a power user (CMD line access, compiling, etc..) then it serves a valid purpose and the developer should be praised for his/her efforts and not flammed, slammed, or criticized.

Thanks to all the developers that make intuititive open source computing possible.
