Slackware, Slax Patrick Volkerding, Slackware's maintainer, announced that Slackware 10.2 is going into beta: "I think it's time to consider this to be mostly frozen and concentrate on beta testing in preparation for the Slackware 10.2 release, so there won't be too many more upgrades and additions."

I burnt the SLAX iso a few days ago, and boy, was I positively surprised! It worked immediately on both my x86 machines - perfectly! And get this: sound worked, too!

That's a first for any Linux distro, ever, for my computers.

What SLAX is missing, is an easy to use, foolproof installer, that would install SLAX from the CD to the HD. Something like exists in BeOS in semplicity of use.

Anyway, I will definitely keep an eye on SLAX from now on. I will try to instal it onto a CF card and boot it as an IDE drive.
