Slackware, Slax I was quite excited about the release of Slackware 10.1, the same way I was excited about 10.0 and versions before that. As a self confessed 'Linux Desktop Dabbler', to date, I've found Slackware my favourite Linux flavour to Dabble with.

Slackware 10.1 is really great!

My NVIDIA 6600GT works out of the box with NVIDIA drivers on 2.6.10 and the whole system runs again very smooth.

I tried Fedora 2&3 but be very happy to be back again to Slackware! (1st I use Suse 5.x,6.x, then Slackware 7.x, 8.x, 9.x, then Fedora 2&3)

Now, I run a great Desktop with Slw10.1, XFCE4.2, Rox-Filer 2.2 and KDE installed (for KDM and K3b) with Fuse2.2/SSHFS1.0

All works as it should work and this behaviour is not comparable with this buggy Fedora thingy. I spend _a_lot_hours_ to findout workarounds for some nasty bugs in Fedora (ac-Kernels are really bad for ISDN cards with CAPI interface, or some DVB-TV related things)

I only compiled bytecode into freetype on Slw10.1, and now installed today the great Staroffice8beta, released today (rpm -i --force --nodeps is your friend on Slackware)
