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.

slack

i too really like the 'slack' way of things, but for desktop usage it just did not have enough of the key packages that i have gotten used to having (current gaim w/ yahoo fixes ect.). I switched back to debian unstable which is slackish but has a more 'automagical' package configuration/depend system.
