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.

Some months ago, I went from Fedora to Debian because Fedora felt so slow. Debian was a big relieve in terms of speed.

But of course I notice the great enthousiasm of Slackware users every time I read a slack article. My question is, is slackware even speedier than Debian? How 'bloated' is Debian in comparison to Slackware?

Another distribution that looks very lean is Arch Linux. Could anyone speculate on how Arch relates to Slackware in terms of leannes and speed?
