Slackware, Slax Slackware Linux 11 was released at the beginning of this month, which marks 13 years of continued development. Slackware Linux, while not the first Linux distribution, is the oldest surviving one, and is starting to show signs of aging. The first version of Slackware Linux was released on July 16, 1993, by Patrick Volkerding. More here.

I switched to Slackware in 2004, and never looked back (I had used mandrake, fedora, redhat, lindows, etc). I love it.

The truth of the saying 'if you learn slackware, you learn linux' really shows itself when you know you're using slackware because you can't tell what distro you're using.

Slackware is easy for anyone who isn't dumb. Unfortunately, there seem to be a lot of people around these days who like their hands being held, including the guy who wrote the article.

just my 2c.
