In the past, my only real experience with a full-fledged Linux distro has been RedHat, which sometimes pisses me off. You can't watch any video files because of legal issues unless you download xine, but my computer won't load either that or mplayer or any of the other media players except for those that came with my installation. (long story short I can't watch movies with RedHat!)Anyways, I recently download ZipSlack and booted up with it and I thought it totally kicked ass! So, I'm considering converting to Slackware. But my main question is how easy is it to watch movie/video files in Slackware?(i.e. do I have to download five million plugins and add-ons from the internet?)
Please give me good news!
