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 have only been using slack since about june this year started out with 9.1.
Before I used rpm based dist mainly and som debian.
I was waiting for the fedora core 2 with high expectations and then It finally came out and I was so disapointed, it was slow and didnīt satisfy my needs at all.
So I dicited to try a compleatly new dist, and since I had been reading that slack is so good I tried it.
and wow....
Slack is the best dist that I have tried so far, like all the others I can say that it is fast and so stable.
To everybody please try slack if you havenīt before. you wont be disapointed.
Currently I have slack 9.1 on my destop and wine xp/slack 10 on my laptop using dropline-gnome on both.
And it works perfect.
Thanks to the slack team.
