This is not that much of an issue with Mdk9.1 and Slack9 as they are
both Gnome/GTK2 based on the GUI. However the advice is good.

What I would actually recommend is that for libraries (at least) folks
should only download the latest stable tarball. Unless you really do
know what you're doing, CVS can be very very dangerous. It's fine for
Scribus as Scribus isn't interferring with any of the main libraries,
but something like KDE3 or gtkmm will give a few sleepless nights if it
doesn't work as it should.



The world is throwing away oppressive regimes
Which don't allow people to choose.
Wars are fought to topple these people.
Yet the folks who do this, still use Windows.
Double standards or not understanding why they did it?
