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 I do not think that the underlying philosophy of Slackware is obsolete.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 business has never been to follow the latest x.y.z package, it makes its work and it's one of the best out there.

Reality is that people leave slackware because they want another package manager (well...people love to have a program say them "hey you need this library"), and people love and stay with slackware because they love its package manager and because like Pat philosophy/choices.

It's not because "hey latest foobar is 1.2.3 but slack has 1.2.2!", come on...
