Hey I was wondering if we could set up any type of linkage between my own site and yours.
Thanks for your time

I would suggest putting some content on your website first, and then trying to advertize it. It usually goes this way with successful websites, not the other way around.

I have been pointed to:

I have modified the information to include almost all information. Please allow it to be compared with other distros (not yet available in the selection-boxes).


Best regards,

I found (I think) a spelling error on the home page.


Unless it is some newly coined term :-)

Well actually it is a newly conied term I’m promoting :P

It means “a vertical portal”, that is a website that looks like a portal but concentrates on one single well-defined “industry” (that is, in our case: mostly GNU/Linux and free software).

The term “vortal” is mentioned in some online dictionaries like the webopedia, so it’s not really a term invented by us :)

I was reading over your review of Slackware and from all appearances it would be on the bottom of the list of choices for newbies. Of course not every distro is directed toward newbies, but there are a couple of distros that are Slackware based that shine some “new light” on Slackware. These are Wolvix and Goblinx. They are easy to use and fun to deal with. Slackware and easy to use in the same sentence!!!!!
I am not done playing with Wolvix but with the addition of Slapt-get it seems that the dependency problem in Slackware is being worked on. The liveCD format gives you easy access and the hard disk install is as easy as some Debian distros. Wolvix recognized all my hardware (not extreme) and setup my DSL internet automagically. Wolnix comes with Xfce and Fluxbox, so you can kiss KDE and Gnome goodby!! Wolvix has a lot of popular and productive apps and some time consuming games. It has utilities/tools that even Kubuntu didn’t have!! And,the all important multimedia codecs and plugins are pre-installed. The only strike against Wolvix is that the software repositories are not as extensive as Debian’s, but then that’s a Slackware thing. It is fast, stable, small enough to fit on a larger jump drive and not a resource hog (will run on older machines). You really don’t have to install it (quite portable). Wolvix makes Slackware easy enough for a newbie, yet still has the old school charm.
Goblinx, well I have looked at the web site, it is similar to Wolnix in being smallish and portable and Slackware based. It is unique in its look and feel and has extraordinary art work. I think these two distros raise the bar on Slackware and deserve a deeper look. I really like the Polishlinux site, it offers great insight into choosing a distro.
