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.

One alternative for server applications or home users would be Gentoo.. it is as only bloated as you tell it to be... check it out at http://www.gentoo.org although Slackware is my 2nd choice, behind Gentoo.. hope they keep up the good work...
