Chime, I am sorry if you took my statement as a judgment and apologize.

I wrote it because from our previous email exchanges I am under the 
that you have enough skills to do things that your linux person does for you
and remembering the old saying: if you give someone a fish you feed them 
for a
day, but if you teach them to fish, you feed them forever". I am not a
programmer myself, and do ask for help when needed.

But that's just my way and anyway I realize that I should not have 
posted in a
public mailing list so, again, I apologize.

Karen, about Linux: I personally prefer FreeBSD (having installed GhostBSD,
which is easier), but will continue to base Slint on Slackware if I can as
Linux has a wider hardware support. But I agree there are too many Linux
distributions, desktops, packages formats etc.

PS I wouldn't have added to this dispersion of efforts creating Slint, 
would my
proposal to help internationalize Slackware and make it more accessible had
been accepted.
