Slackware, Slax "Slackware is old-school Linux. Back in the day - before Red Hat seized the throne - Pat Volkerding's Linux distribution was the undisputed king of the hill. Many still use it today. By the time I started playing with Linux in 1995, or running my Web server with it in 1996, Slackware's slump in market share had already begun. I've tried a lot of different Linux distributions during the years since then, but until recently I had never tried Slackware. Here's what I've learned about Slackware while installing and using the recently released Slackware 10.2."

I've installed Slack vs. other distros and it is also IMHO easier to use. If you don't want to do something, it doesn't make you. Sure, it's text only, but it's still easier (and faster) than even Redhat. Dependency resolution gives me a headache. Even under RedHat, I still use --nodeps when installing RPMs. And why? Because it gives me more info then.
