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 FreeBSD is pretty much the same as the Debian box you mentioned. KDE 3.1.2 with all the bells and whistles going doesn't consume as much as Windows XP. I always find it funny how there was ment to be a review process to stop this, however, now we have the reviewers in on this whole "lets incite a holy war between the two communities".
