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 I do not think that the underlying philosophy of Slackware is obsolete.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.

Disagree

Wow, I could not disagree more. I have used Slack 10.1 since its release and I have found it to be exceptionally well-done, as is the usual case. I have upgraded to KDE 3.4, XFCE 4.2.1, kernel 2.6.11.8 and, using Gware (http://www.gware.org) GNOME 2.10. I ususally use XFCE and I have not encountered the problem the reviewer mentioned.

For me, Slackware is, and always will be, the best Linux distribution. Rock on, Patrick.
