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 I do not think that the underlying philosophy of Slackware is obsolete.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

Arch would be a better solution to the kinda-neglected Slackware today.

Eugenia: in what way is Slackware neglected? Patrick has been absent for a while during his illness, but security issues were handled very well by SlackSec and GUS-BR. The last few months the development of Slackware has continued in pretty much the same pace as before.
