Slackware as my first Linux distro, brave or stupid?
So I've heard that Slackware is for advanced users, will I have a hard time learning Linux by using Slackware? How long does it take to be adept at Linux? I'm fairly good with computers, I develop Java applications on my free time and I am starting college this year (Business information technology and computer science.) I believe I can learn easily but what do you guys think?
