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 I do not think that the underlying philosophy of Slackware is obsolete.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

Slackware and ArchLinux ?
by Anonymous on Mon 9th May 2005 21:12 UTC

I wonder why many refer to Arch when talking about Slackware (whenever comparison comes out)
Anyway, I gather Crux is much nearer the original motto of Slackware ( "KISS" ) and *BSD init than any other distro.
I guess many should give it a try ( at least on PPC).

I find Crux is not much talked about on Osnews, when we get regular reviews/info about Ubuntu, Slack and others.

(btw, I'm a Slack fan, only Crux is very appealing I find)
