Slackware, Slax My first experience with Slackware Linux came with version 9.1, after 4 years of using various versions of Red Hat and SUSE Linux. I disliked the general direction these distributions were moving in and didn't see their increasing focus on the "big end of town" as auguring well for either myself or clients of my small one-person IT consultancy business. I quickly became a Slackware convert and have since used it exclusively for all my server deployments. Check in for more and 15 screenshots from Slackware 10.

I'm using Slackware 10.0 as my home desktop and it is a pretty desktop system. I enabled 2.6.7 stock kernel added with Con Colivas patch (CK5) as the unique "non default" component (I like supermount..:-) and others adds).

My machine is a Atlhon t-bird 900Mhz with 256MB RAM and, SB Live Value, Gforce2 MX 400, ASUS A7V133, Seagate Medalist 4.3GB 5400RPM (UDMA33) - /dev/hde as my "/home" (384MB for "/swap) and a Seagate U-Series 20GB 5400RPM (UDMA100) - /dev/hda: "/boot", "/", "/opt" and a CD-ROM drive LG 24x10x40 - /dev/hdc.

The performance with Slackware 10.0 is great... And the overall setup was like a soft breeze.:-)

About desktop environment, I enabled Gnome.
