For those of you living in the UK, the Slackware version of Linux is available
on the front of the current edition of "Personal Computer World" for 2 pounds
95. (I know Linux is free, but some CD versions charge you about 20 quid for
the CD!) Also the instructions tell you it is a "Shareware" version of Unix,
but this (as far as I know) isn't true.
The only problem is that all the stuff is compressed so you have to install ALL
of the software onto a hard disk if you're going to use it - you can't run it
off the CD. And fvwm is the shittest GUI I've ever come across, and you can't
get Motif unless you buy it off OSF.
But it's a good OS otherwise.

Hit those nails on the head,
And I respect a man who goes to where he wants to be
Even if he wants to be dead."
