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.

Indeed, KDE apps launch new windows or load very fast on Slackware. Severn/RH9 on the same machine/partition was never as fast.

Hoi Eugenia,

Download kernel-2.6.0-test5 and patch it with 2.6.0-test5-mm4.bz2 and you will have a TURBO desktop :-)
