Slackware, Slax For almost a week now, I've been using Slackware 9.1 (RC-1 released today), and I am having a blast. Slackware doesn't have more than 6-8% of the Linux market these days, but it used to be one of the most-used distros back in the day. Today, many think of Slackware as a true classic, a thought that is often accompanied by a feeling that Slackware is not a user-friendly or an uber-modern Linux distribution. There is some truth in that statement, but there is always the big "But". Read on for our very positive experience with Slackware 9.1-pre. Update: In less than 24 hours since the RC-1, Slackware 9.1 RC-2 is out.

"I am literally having a blast"

I've noticed that people (especially Americans and the US media) use the word "literally" to emphasize something, and unless the definition has changed in America, it means just the opposite.

It really annoys me when words are used incorrectly, but I'm not too sure why. Other people have mentioned it to me as well.

Literally: "actually; without exaggeration or inaccuracy: The city was literally destroyed."
