Slackware, Slax Open Addict reviews Slackware Linux 11.0, and concludes: "The latest Slackware release is more of the same pure Slackware goodness from Patrick and Company. It doesn't drastically diverge from 10.2 but adds some new software packages and includes some newer kernel support. Hardware detection is pretty much as basic as it can be with much of the configuration and tweaking on you - the end user. Thankfully, it isn't hard to configure Slackware through its easy to find textfile-based configuration files, but newbies might be lost."

Heh-heh, good point:-) I like being able to configure my Slackware boxes the way I want. Yes, we should perhaps make FreeBSD more user-friendly with a shiny anaconda GUI installer......NOT.
People who want things to just work can have Suse, Mandriva, Fedora, or Ubuntu.
If you're not afraid to learn a bit then try Slackware or FreeBSD.
