Re: Iggdrasil, a new amazing screenreader

Well if you want to be a hacker, go be my guest, because Slackware was designed for it, but for everyone else, Debian is the way to go, and this is a Debian specific mailing list, not a Slackware one

Dude, anyone that uses Slackware and enjoys it, enjoys it for what it is. It's not your job to tell people what to use and what not to use. Some of these people have been using computers, most likely, much longer than you have, so can deal with compiling software, managing different package managers, building compile scripts for their package managers, and generally dealing with a system as... scenic as Slackware. You are not anyone's parents on this list. It is a list for Linux users who enjoy using advanced software. These people, in conclusion, know what they're getting into, and what they're doing. If not, they'll ask for help on choosing a distribution. Also, for any XKCD references, search for them on explainxkcd.org.

I don't have to tell you this but for the last time, slackware isn't easy to use nore is anything based on slackware, which is why it doesn't support secure boot also, that is why debian is better

And I just stated that Slint was amazingly accessible, accessibility also means easy to use. Slint has the features, at least with additional screen readers, already installed, easy to switch on with a well documented script named "speak-with".

That's not a war or any reason for a war, it's just a compliment.

I love Debian, although I'd like to install the 10.1 from the installation media and have sound while doing so. I understand it's just my hardware not everyone else's. I'm still trying to figure out the cause, but with multiple problems it's difficult, but I can run Debian 10.1 as root, but I don't want to! So I'll uninstall and reinstall Debian 9.

There seems to be someone else who is flooding the list with nonsense which should stop.

Samuel, I stand by my statement, accessibility is not only ability to be used, but ease of use, but that wasn't and never should be a call for a war, which is what only you have mentioned. 

There, I said it. I never mentioned a war, I never called for one, I simply said that it's easier to access accessibility features in Slint, especially true for the newcomer. A compliment, not a wish for war.

Best wishes,

I didn't quote you, I quoted D.J.J. Ring.
