I have always used Slackware since I started using Linux. I have 
tried Debian and didn't like it much at all. I was looking for the 
article you are talkin about but I am unable to find it. I 
personally feel that Slackware is a god compared to Debian, but that 
is my own opinion I know that alot of people would probably 
disagree. Do you by chance have the link to the article I would be 
interested in taking a look at it.
