It also includes glibc-2.3.6, gcc-3.4.6, X11R6.9.0 from X.Org, and more.

From the beginning, Slackware has offered a stable and secure Linux distribution for UNIX veterans

I dare to differ. PHP is still not fixed [1], no features like Stack Smashing Protection, ASLR, PIE enabled network servers, etc. What is more, security updates are released really late [2]. If you want secure system, there are better choices...

Anyway, have a nice day ;)
