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 guess if you're either willing to sacrifice a modern base distro or stability apt-get is a bonus. To me it's not worth messing with it, because when you run debian your system seems to be on auto-pilot, it will change your configuration files when you upgrade, which I really don't like.

Also Debian doesn't have rc scripts...end of argument.
