oh man, i am preparing to reinstall everything from scratch on my pc and i am in a bit of a dillemma here.
i love slackware, as some of you know, but quite frankly i am very attracted to not having to set shit up. With this new fedora project and slack 9.1 just around the corner, I am very torn between my choices. I have also wanted to try bsd for a long time but never had the guts.....anyway, please help out since i am ripping my hair out thinking about this, its just such a hard choice, also if you choose other, please specifiy in a post.

FreeBSD 5.1, just try it, it comes with like nothing, but installing stuff is SO easy and quick, cd /usr/ports/$blah/$package; make install && make clean try FreeBSD, I personally run *BSD and Slackware, so I do recommend it...

I can't believe I just checked that ;). I'm also a slack head but I'm going to be using fedora by tonight. I am very interested in the prospects of developing for it. If this sounds interesting to you hac ya might as well give fedora a go. Slack 9.1 will have all the apps that you would want for a workstation (and playstation :)) but the development process is up to a few people and pretty stagnant (in comparison to other distributions). The Fedora project just sounds like it's going to be very cool (#fedora and #fedora-devl on freenode).

OMFG SLACKWARE 9.1 OUT!!!!!!! w000t

i guess until fedora comes out i might try it....don't have anything to loose...lol

man, i think i will stick to slackware, its just that i am so familiar with them and their policies and style, its just too hard to switch and i just don't mind setting up everything by hand...

i AM going to be trying fedora when it comes out though, it sound cool.
