Slackware, Slax "Slackware remains Slackware. It's been around for a very long time and it has a very loyal following. It's an excellent choice for the Linux hobbyist who wants to build, configure, and tweak their system to the nth degree. Slackware certainly gives you absolute control over your system. Nothing is made to be easy or user friendly", writes Caitlyn Martin.

I have always had an extreme respect and love for Slackware, but I have always been more of "a Debian type", easy package management and everything you might desire available as a binary.

Funny, it is the same thing for me but I always had fond memories of the brief time that I ran Slackware (as a server AND as a desktop).

Slack has a strong community here in Brazil and sites like and make it a breeze to run it. Although tough, it is not nearly as bad as Caitlyn make it sounds on TFA.

But I'm done with distro hopping and one would have to take Debian away from my cold dead fingers these days. ;)
