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.

Debians on the desktop and Slack

Besides, Libranet is a good "Debian on the desktop" distro...

As is Mepis, which is what I am running currently.

I have tried slack in the past, and liked a lot of things about it, but every time I have tried there has been just one or two little things that no matter what I did I couldn't get to work right.
