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 have used slackware's core installation as the base for different servers for some time, as it is a no-nonsense basic installation that is *very* easy to build upon and customize to your particular needs. like most any *nix, it can support about anything if you set it up right.
