Slackware, Slax Open Addict reviews Slackware Linux 11.0, and concludes: "The latest Slackware release is more of the same pure Slackware goodness from Patrick and Company. It doesn't drastically diverge from 10.2 but adds some new software packages and includes some newer kernel support. Hardware detection is pretty much as basic as it can be with much of the configuration and tweaking on you - the end user. Thankfully, it isn't hard to configure Slackware through its easy to find textfile-based configuration files, but newbies might be lost."

RE: Lack of x86_64

Member since:

I had a Slackware subscription up to 10.2, but when Slackware 11 came out I gave it up because I needed x86_64 support

There is an AMD64 fork of Slackware called Slamd64. I've never run it, but you might want to give it a try before you give up on Slackware's simplicity. :-)
