Hi
« on: April 23, 2009, 08:52:26 am »

Hi all,

I'm french; so, my English can be sometimes difficult to understand… I use Slackware since 1992 on various machines (the last one: Laptop Toshiba P473);

I bought recently an HP 2133: the SLED is certainly the worst Linux thing than I ever saw (The keyboard which turns without warning to Korean characters … Unusable !)

I tested thus many distributions (with several problems...). I finally chose the VL 6 and I' am very satisfied of it (Of course, I impatiently await the VL 7 to improve the display management… But it is certainly the best distribution for this machine and, moreover, I can preserve my practices (I hope)).

I register for better knowing this distribution… and perhaps poster easy ways if can to discover some!

pjtuloup,

Welcome to the forum! 

Slackware since 1992?  Wow! I look forward to your comments on some of the slackware questions that get posted here.

PS  Any special French significance to your name?

John

Thank you all for the reception !

Sledgehammer: my nickname is made if my real first name and name:

My name (Tuloup) means "hunter (killer) of wolf(es)": certainly the profession of one of my ancestors, but myself I gave it up  ;D
