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.

RE: A whole bunch of crap.

Please rethink using any distro that forces you upgrade or update only through biannual and annual CDs. The idea alone is repugnant. Having said that, and based on the above mentioned criteria, 95% of all other Linux distros are a bunch of crap.

I don't think I know distro that forced its users to upgrade only once or twice a year? Name it please?

And about claim about good distro, please explain what kind of :
- easy init system, and
- great package management system
you think is good.
There are several flavour of distros, because there are several kind of taste about "good" and "bad". And we can pick one the most fitted with us.
