Adventures in Linux: an Update

Filed under
Linux
Slack

I’ve switched desktop OSes (again!). It’s funny, I used Debian for like three years and didn’t even look at anything else, but I’m not the same user I was then and ever since June of last year I’ve been casting about for something that would suit the user I am now.

I ran Slackware for awhile. Matter of fact, I still am using Slackware for servers. I’m thinking I’ll probably stick with Slackware as my server OS, simply because it trounces absolutely everything in terms of can’t-kill-it stability… even Debian stable. So all of the Slackware users who have had so many kind things to say about my Slackware tutorials can relax; those tutorials aren’t going anywhere. I may set up two separate sections of the website; one for beginners and one for more advanced users, the latter of which would contain the Slackware stuff.

Slackware has a lot going for it, [but] I think I’ve finally found what I’m looking for! I’m using Chakra.
