I partially agree here. You don't just install mysql and debconf does the 
rest, you install the raw package, basically a tarball and then start hacking 
away config files. You get there, but slowly, but then again you know exactly 
what you did and what makes your box tick.

I so totally agree.
95% of the questions asked on freenode/#kubuntu would trigger rude remarks on 
##slackware. That's not always bad. I've considered more than once making a 
kub channel of my own and state in the topic that this is geekworld in some 
Something I miss from Slack.
