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."

How much are you willing to give up in your crusade against ewwwwbloated software that actually has features and advanced capabilities?


Just because I value reliability, speed, and a bloat-free system why does that mean I am on a crusade?

Go back and read my other posts. I used Kubuntu 7.10 and 8.04. I "converted" my father over to Linux with Kubuntu. He's happy with it. I don't "crusade" against him for using it. It's great that he's no longer using windows.

But seeing we'll have to agree to disagree don't make assumptions and throw prejoratives around without knowing the "who" behind the post. You read too much into my post, apparently.

And I never said that the *buntus were not usable. Remember, I used them myself for months. Though the bugs may not prevent one from using the system, they are there nonetheless.
