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.

is my distro of choice for now. I've used many over the years and although it has a few teething pains, it's very fast and has script install options for newbs and vets. I have never liked Debian or Redhat based distros...too bloated and too slow. Slack is good and does make you learn a thing or two. If you want to try to get an idea of Slack speed, download and burn the SLAX livecd, install to hd and be amazed how zippy it is.
