Comment: Congratulations Slackware (Score 2) 183

by felixdzerzhinsky (#41496679) Attached to: Slackware 14.0 Arrives
I am a Debian user. I have experimented with Slackware. Most recently I installed Slackware 13.37. But after a month I went back to Debian simply because I prefer to work with apt-get. I am personally more efficient with Debian. Having said that Slackware has been around for a long time. People who use it don't just like it...they love it. Slackware must be doing something right. My personal experience is that the community support on IRC #slackware is outstanding and must be one of the reasons for the distro's longevity. So Congratulations to the Slackware community!

The Google Maps of Cambodia are useless here because they use Street Names and everybody here uses Street Numbers. Google have been told zillions of times but they obviously don't give a crap. I guess the market is too small for them to bother. Open Street Map is much more usable here.
