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.

1) Whereis iso ??!!! www.linuxiso.org
2) Not for geeks ??!!! I donīt think any Linux is only for geeks. I have used Slack for a long time, but now I had to say Debian is my choice, no matter why. For any ComputerInTheBox buyer, even WindowsXp is anoying to install and configure. Try install a Win98 in a new FloppyLess PC !
3) Kernel compile/patch/update/customize, is so simple that thereisnt any computer in my home with a same one, even the Notebook has his own customized.
4) For those wants install and use without any customize action: Yes! Slack could be more chosen. Its is perfect.
5) apt-get with unstable debian is not perfect, but is so cool aways have the latest KDE and other stuff 1st than everybody.
