Revised Slackware keeps it simple

Susan, you should be sure to check out slackbuilds.org for a /ton/ of slackbuild scripts for third party software. SlackBuilds.org is run by several well known Slackware developers and Patrick Volkerding even mentions it in the release announcements. Also, there is sbopkg at www.sbopkg.org which is a great command line and dialog interface front end to slackbuilds.org. It will sync with the slackbuilds.org repo and let you automatically install stuff. Works a treat.

I am darn glad that there is a distro out there that keeps things clean and simple.
