Slackware, Slax Slackware 11.0 contains the 2.4.33.3 Linux kernel (default), 2.6.17.13 in /extra and 2.6.18 in the /testing directory. This Slackware version is by far the most cutting edge ever released, it includes KDE version 3.5.4 (including the Amarok media player), XFCE 4.2.3.2, the latest versions of Firefox and Thunderbird, plus SeaMonkey 1.0.5 (replacing the Mozilla suite). It also includes glibc-2.3.6, gcc-3.4.6, X11R6.9.0 from X.Org, and more.

How's that 3 CDs not including extras? I know only about 2 CDs and the second one is not even needed unless you plan to install KDE or 2.6 kernel. At least that was in 10.2 . Maybe Pat added more CDs but I believe only one is needed for a fully functional system.So far I didn't checked for mirors offering iso's. I'll do that in the evening.Most probably I will buy it as I did with 9 and 10.2. So far 10.2 is doing the jos,there's no need for me to re-install.Maybe later.It is extremely simple to install 2.6 kernel (basic). 1 CD is more than enough for my server machine.
