Back on ArchLinux
2016-11-10After some time of fiddling around with Slackware now, I decided to switch back to ArchLinux on my main machine. Partially, because at some point it ended being fun searching for dependencies on Slackware, and partially because I missed pacman. slackpkg did a really good job on Slackware, but could not resolve dependencies.
I am not 100% confident that this switch will be permanent. Since Slackware was my first distro to touch about 16 years ago, I learned to really love it. There is much nostalgia involved in this decision. I like the Slackware community, I like how Patrick Volkerding does things and I like the pure simplicity of it. But, as mentioned, then there is pacman ...
If someone ported pacman to Slackware (slackman ;) ?) I would be first in line to try it and switch back to Slack.
