Slackware is not the most user-friendly of distros; or rather, as the Unix joke goes, it’s picky about who its friends are. On the other hand, it has distinct advantages in terms of flexibility, simplicity and a charming literalness of mind. It does not, however, speak many languages ‘out of the box’.

Latar belakang ceritanya adalah pengalaman saudara saya, bro Mada di ruang pendadaran; ia dikomplain oleh salah satu dosen pengujinya (Bu Ning??? kalo’ ga salah, iya?).

Dosen penguji: Program Anda ini tidak user-friendly

Mada: *bingung* Loh, ngga’ user-friendly bagaimana Bu? Buat kami, ya user-friendly itu yang begini ini, text mode

Dosen Penguji: Ah, tapi sulit bagi orang awam memakainya! *ngeyel*

Mada:*perasaan di awal udah jelas dikasih tau, ini bukan untuk orang awam, tapi untuk ahli forensik*

Pak BPDP: *memotong* Linux itu ya gitu itu Bu’… selektif dalam memilih teman; hanya berteman ama orang yang pinter, ngga’ mau ama yang bodo’…

Saya yang diceritain beberapa malem yang lalu pada akhirnya cuma komentar (berkali-kali): Tjuabbpee deeeeβ„’…πŸ˜•

Ini cerita tentang Stagos FSE dan si pembuatnya, di ruang pendadaran…πŸ˜€ Berikut ini saya tambahkan beberapa kutipan “menarik”πŸ˜‰

Linux: the operating system with a CLUE… Command Line User Environment.
–seen in a posting in comp.software.testing.

The only “intuitive” interface is the nipple. After that, it’s all learned.
–Bruce Ediger, bediger [at] teal [dot] csn [dot] org, on X interfaces.

After watching my newly-retired dad spend two weeks learning how to make a new folder, it became obvious that “intuitive” mostly means “what the writer or speaker of intuitive likes”.
–Bruce Ediger, bediger [at] teal [dot] csn [dot] org, on X the intuitiveness of a Mac interface.

Now I know someone out there is going to claim, “Well then, UNIX is intuitive, because you only need to learn 5000 commands, and then everything else follows from that! Ha ha ha…!
–Andy Bates on “intuitive interfaces“, slightly defending Macs.

> No manual is ever necessary.
May I politely interject here: BULLSHIT. That’s the biggest Apple lie of all.
–Discussion on comp.os.linux.misc on the intuitiveness of interfaces.

How do I type “for i in *.dvi do xdvi $i done” in a GUI?
–Discussion on comp.os.linux.misc on the intuitiveness of interfaces.

Who wants to remember that escape–x-alt-control-left shift-b puts you into super-edit-debug-compile-mode?
–Discussion on the intuitiveness of commands, especially Emacs.

Anyone who thinks UNIX is intuitive should be forced to write 5000 lines of code using nothing but vi or emacs. AAAAACK!
–Discussion on the intuitiveness of commands, especially Emacs.

> Is there any hope for me? Am I just thick? Does anyone remember the
> Rubiks Cube, it was easier!
I found that the Rubiks cube and Linux are alike. Looks real confusing until you read the right book.πŸ™‚
–seen on c.o.l.misc, about the “Linux Learning Curve”.

> I get the following error messages at bootup, could anyone tell me
> what they mean?
> fcntl_setlk() called by process 51 (lpd) with broken flock() emulation.
They mean that you have not read the documentation when upgrading the kernel.
–seen on c.o.l.misc

<SomeLamer> what’s the difference between chattr and chmod?
<SomeGuru> SomeLamer: man chattr > 1; man chmod > 2; diff -u 1 2 | less
–seen on #Linux on irc.

Note: mohon maaf kepada sang empunya kisah dan para saksi (mata). Kata-kata di sini sangat mungkin tidak akurat.
