Slackware, Slax "I have very mixed feelings about this release of Slackware. I do not think that the underlying philosophy of Slackware is obsolete. The concept of a system that can be configured and molded to the n'th degree is still in my opinion very much a good idea. However, this release of Slackware is not without its problems in execution." Read the review here.

All Hail Slackware!

I have since moved on to other things (I really enjoy package management), but Slackware will always be dear to my heart. I wish there was a distro with full package management that somehow still tried to keep the system as pure and simple as possible. Having the BSD init system, for instance, is something that I miss.
