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.

LILO
by Francisco on Thu 15th Jul 2004 13:51 UTC

I for one still welcome our LILO overlords. I like to use windows's own bootloader to boot linux (because if i reinstall windows or linux, someone messes with the other) but with ntloader i can reinstall windows without killing linux and viceversa.

On my system grub has never worked, and i know lilo pretty much, so why mess with it?
