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 I do not think that the underlying philosophy of Slackware is obsolete.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

Boot time
by WHY? on Mon 9th May 2005 21:03 UTC

Why does every GNU/Linux review talk about boot time. GNU/Linux was designed to be ON all the time. The Linux kernel is stabel enough to allow the system to run for Months on end. Services can be started and stopped with out a reboot. Unless your changing the actual Kernel, once a system is booted theres no reason to shut it down.
