Re: Latest Slax release needs more time in the oven

Your post is in Q & A format response to the reviewer. The problem with that is that 1) The reviewer was not asking any questions, and 2) The reviewer was stating his experiences with Slax on his laptop. The review makes it clear that Slax is VERY far from being ready for mass Desktop Users. Thats sad, but perhaps its not the goal of Slax to be a true desktop OS for prime time usage. Perhaps instead, its goal is to be a kind of "jack of all trades" kind of thing for doing repairs on broken windows systems, etc. If thats the case, then it sounds like it can certainly accomplish that task. In any case, Slax really does not have any kind of hope to compete with distro's such as Ubuntu, PCLinuxOS, Mandriva, Fedora, or OpenSUSE in the desktop arena anyway.
