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.

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

Bud... this is how I feel about Slackware to the letter. I've tried to think about would I feel if the Slackware ceased to exist... I would go with Arch to savor the memories of Slack. As for Debian... she's my second favorite distro to use.

I'm rockin 4 pc's running - Slack, Debian, Arch, FreeBSD and they all get along so well I could not imagine life without the them. My wife recently got frustrated with Windows and ask me for an os to install without the hassels that MS users deal with a while back.

I set her up on Slackware 12 and taught her some commands as far as maintaining it, now she goes to work bragging how she doesn't have to deal with the plagues of Windows.

Strange ... Give it a name.

Thank you guys especially for the operating systems I've aforementioned for all the hard work and dedication that you put into making this possible.

-Bradley
