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 hear you Eugenia, and while I'm not trying to start any ranting and raving here. I do see your points about the currents and dropline, I kind of forgot about those enhancements. I would like to say though that if we keep accepting "good enough" for "Linux" it would seem that is almost like sealing the fate of Linux. We can't accept good enough if we want the movement to keep going where its going ;-).

Long live *BSD for the small business ;-) *Disclaimer: unless you want to easily and effectively serve Java based web applications*
