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."

- The setup routine of Slackware is really bad - I don't need a graphical installer, but something like the console installer of Debian should really be implemented.

- There is no decent package manager in Slack - Once you get used to the ease of packages you won't miss them

- a standard kernel 2.4 in a modern distro is a joke - sorry to say this. And it misses out on so many features in 2.6.

- where is native GNOME? It is niot acceptable that a modern Linux distribution misses out on it (and one shoukld not invent stories about how bad GNOME is - every other distributor is able to support it)
