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.

Using rpm2tgz on the official OpenOffice packages has always worked well for me. It won't create menu entries or a nice symbolic link, but they aren't things I'm too concerned about.
