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."

I will have to agree.
I just did the same set up for my granddaughter on her computer about two weeks ago. It took about 30 minutes flat.
She has gone just over two weeks now without coming to me and complaining about something being messed up on her computer. (It formerly had Windows2000 on it.)
That is a record.
I just took a look at it tonight saw that she had reset all of the fonts, installed a new background image and some wallpapers for the taskbar.
Slackware is different, not harder, just different.
I have had several friends install Slackware with my helping them over the phone and every one of them has been amazed at how easy and fast it really was.
If you know the basics of how to partition a hard drive the rest is just reading the instructions as you go along.
IMHO: Slackware 11.0 is the best Slack ever. Pat did a bang-up job of sorting this one out.
