Slackware, Slax One of the oldest Linux distributions, Slackware, has pushed out another release. "Well folks, it's that time to announce a new stable Slackware release again. So, without further ado, announcing Slackware version 12.1! Since we've moved to supporting the 2.6 kernel series exclusively (and fine-tuned the system to get the most out of it), we feel that Slackware 12.1 has many improvements over our last release (Slackware 12.0) and is a must-have upgrade for any Slackware user."

Strange... Slack does not need to be defended, she definitely speaks for herself. Dependencies - I've always put dependencies for the programs that I use on a flash drive and when there is a new or updated package I simply replace it so I'm always current. If dependencies are soley the reason for people walking away from Slack... then let them walk.

If you know what programs you need for day to day tasks, it just makes sense to keep up with what dependencies are need.

Opensource... For the people, by the people.

Peace.
