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.

"I believe The Open Group and UNIX trade mark are now owned by SCO... "

How about 15 seconds of fact-checking before posting stuff like the above? SCO acquired the old AT&T UNIX source code from Novell in 1995. The UNIX trademark was transferred to an industry consortium, X/Open, which is The Open Group nowadays. (with Fujitsu, HP, Hitachi, IBM and Sun being the main sponsors).
