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.

"However, I go to try install XMMS, and it tells me it needs to uninstall gnome panel 2.2 and install 1.4. I'm just like whatever, and I booted into XP because I didn't want to deal with it."

God, look. I know this is wrong, but RTFM. The Gentoo docs are awesome, try reading them.

USE="-gnome" emerge xmms
