Nope, that's all correct. Upgrading Slackware installation is a real pain
( actually, I wanted to upgrade my Slackware, thought about it, and
installed Debian ). I think they've come up with howto-upgrade-your-
Slackware. Have a look at Slackware mirrors, if you're interested.
To keep universal balance of things, Slackware has more packages
( I guess because Patrick includes non-GPL-copyrighted software in
the distribution ) and there's an ELF distribution of Slackware.
