Slackware, Slax Slackware is the oldest surviving Linux distribution out there. For those who believe that Slackware was the first Linux distribution I have news, because SLS was before Slackware, but that is another story. It is the most *NIX like distribution and has borrowed many of the things we can find in BSD *NIX. Here is a mini-review of their latest release, 9.0.

Nice minireview!

Yeah, you're right, many people don't take a distro into consideration just because of its text-based installer.

Slackware runs pretty fast and eats little resources. I also like Red Hat Linux. Both of them are my favorites. ;)
