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.

Just wanna make a point to debian users here: xfree86 is way old!!! the rest is ok about the distro- but what I can`t understand is why not do a "new beta" distro like redhat/suse/mandrake/slack do and have a stable- well debian trie, but pakages uses like weeeeeeks to go into testing/unstable..

Fix that and fix the package selection, use the slack installer maby? This is why I use slack on my home computer/laptop and debian on my servers.
