Slackware, Slax Slackware Linux 11 was released at the beginning of this month, which marks 13 years of continued development. Slackware Linux, while not the first Linux distribution, is the oldest surviving one, and is starting to show signs of aging. The first version of Slackware Linux was released on July 16, 1993, by Patrick Volkerding. More here.

Perhaps hardcore Unix geeks appreciate Slackware's long tradition of being the most primitive distribution, but 99% of the rest of the world just wants their computers to work. Yet with Slackware, it is the user who ends up working; not the computer.
