This is for the slackware crowd
we may have some old school slackware users that would enjoy the new features added
and they would feel at home quickly (ugly and simple ) that's the target group

There's a menu entry also in Development

The xinstaller is a special thing. Place some packages in /tmp
only those packages get listed as options to install.
Why tmp ? When you build packages from slackbuilds they get placed in /tmp

*of course we have official tools PPM already
that work well and look excellent

This is just another way to say hey slackware we love you
however you install it :)

Extra tech data
If you do a dependency check a text file copy of the check file is kept here
