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.

The "graphical tools" you or I might use to install Linux on a single desktop don't count for much when you need to roll out hundreds of Linux desktops and the servers that support them. When those kind of customers talk about support, they mean paying the vendor to provide people and tools to make those things happen. Slackware is as capable a distribution as any, but Patrick V. has chosen another path.
