Thank you, Chris!

100% agreed. Those derogatory comments sucks. I just removed them.

As for the first three paragraphs, I think they contextualize why Slackware is so underrated in the cloud front. Sure that this is my opinion (lack of documentation), but I tend to believe that it's quite correct (maybe because it's my opinion in the first place).

If there's the need to remove that three paragraphs, then I think to remove the whole first section is fine, as the mention to the other articles have no reason to exists then. Just imagine an article beginning with:

"But let's be fair here..."
