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.

Ahh thanks for the reminder hac. I've been using BeOS Max edition for awhile now (which is pretty damn cool...I don't know why I didn't mention it earlier :\) so I gotta see what Zeta is like :).

Of course I'll wait till zeta is out of beta ;).
