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.

About the /usr filesystem..

My advice: don't! make it a separate filesystem. There's really no reason, and doing so might in fact only cause problems. The stuff in /usr can be crucial to revive a system that can only be booted into single user mode, so you want it there, together with /

Otherwise, nice review. And, oh, of course: Slackware rulez!
