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 don't know what you're talking about, greg. gAIM 0.79 is in Slackware 10 and works perfectly fine with Yahoo.

Oh, and re partitioning, I was only able to install Slackware without too much fuss because I had partitioned beforehand. cfdisk confused me a lot. I probably would have gotten the hang of it, but not without a lot of hassle.
