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.

RE: glibc 2.3

You bring up a good point.
The number of rule of all library is to NEVER BREAK THE CLIENT CODE.

Anyone understand why glibc is breaking so many client code?
Maybe its time that linux libraries start using versioning.

ln -s lib.so.2 lib.so.1 should always work it might require more work for them to maintain ,but its hell of alot better than static libraries.
