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.

... than I ever thought at Slack 7.0 times :-)

I'm *VERY* happy with Slackware all the time. At work, I use Suse and hate it. At home, I tested RH&Mandrake to see anything could be better.
Nothing. Forget it. Every other distro a bit overloaded and overpatched.
Slackware rule the Linux world. 9.1 is a big step what I want, what everyone needs to use, to administrate, to work with an easy Unix/Linux System!

Get it, I'm very happy :-))
