Seems I was right. You chose to purchase a subscription that provides
automatic shipments of a particular Linux distribution and feel you have to
install it just because it arrived in the mail. That's what you call
rational? You need a much better reason to install a new operating system
than "because it arrived in the mail." For years you have been complaining
about a poor installation program yet you continue to use it? That's what
you call rational? You need to sit down and think about what you are doing
before complaining about something that was your choice. Nobody forced you
to pursue that course of action, did they? If you are so disillusioned with
Slackware, why don't you cancel your subscription and install a different
Linux distribution? That, to me, seems a much more logical and rational
course of action. You didn't offend me, I just think you're silly.
P.S. You really didn't need to send me a email copy of your response,
especially since you posted your response to this newsgroup and neither
your email or posted message indicated the existence of the other.
