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 did first try to use Linux with Yggdrasil, it wasn't that easy and I moved to Slackware since I always wanted to move away from slackware because of some ads, or articles, whatever, I have tried some Linux, and honnestly very few of them are not easy to use obscure, package management is always missing something (what is that hard to do a ./configure make make install ?)... you want to upgrade well pay first, Red-hat fedora, mandrake, suse, gentoo, debian, I have been to user group... but you know what I always get back to Slackware...
People that are jocking about it should really give it a try, it is worth it, and quite addicting
