Slackware, Slax Patrick Volkerding, Slackware's maintainer, announced that Slackware 10.2 is going into beta: "I think it's time to consider this to be mostly frozen and concentrate on beta testing in preparation for the Slackware 10.2 release, so there won't be too many more upgrades and additions."

Is there a smaller slackware?

I dislike these 4+ CD distros. I don't want most of the stuff that comes on such distros, so why should I download it?

That's one thing I like Debian. Debian has a 100MB base system, then I can download what I want.

I guess there's Vector, or Mini-Slack. Although I've read that mini-slack isn't quite ready for prime-time yet.

I dislike these 4+ CD distros.

Where did "4 CDs" come from in discussion of Slackware?

2 CDs:
1 - Base (including base X, servers, etc.)
2 - GUI sets (Used to be KDE and Gnome, not sure about gnome now...)

I think you'll need both cds - I've downloaded current iso from slackware.no recently and found that xap/ has been moved to 2nd cd.
