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.

I'll take 3 cds over 50 floppy disks any day like I used to do with slack 3.1. Downloading the A, D, N, X sets and copying to floppy just to install it one disk at a time was pretty time consuming.

No kidding. These kids today. ;)

I've been thinking about trying a 2.4 distro for my machine at home. All the recent 2.6-based distributions crash on it (Fedora 5, Ubuntu 6.04). Machine runs fine under WinXP and FreeBSD 6.1 though.
