Strongly tied with GNU software.
- Strong enough for there to be a GNU/Linux argument. An argument strong enough for me to want to side with just "Linux" by removing GNU software which has, for years, been abysmally-documented at best. It's better now, but the hate is still there.
- See /tag/gnu-software for a partial list.
The oldest extant distribution, Slackware focuses on a sort of straightforwardness. It's not "light" or "easy", it is what it is. It's not cripplingly-difficult like Gentoo or Arch Linux. Using it is a little taxing on the mind, but doesn't actually require a whole lot of deep understanding. It's install was straightforward.
Using it, I feel "closer" to my computer.

Solution: Do at least five interesting things each day. Create new posts or a summary post of any edits or other interesting things.

I have been spending a good week or so with some spare-time research of VoIP telephone solutions.
It's a simple desire, really. I just want to have a phone number with voicemail and be able to make and receive local calls.
These days, Webcams universally have microphones built-in.
