Slackware, Slax Patrick J. Volkerding announced the first release candidate of Slackware 12 in the current changelog. This will be the first Slackware release with a kernel from the 2.6 tree (2.6.21.5) as default. "It's that time again, and here we have Slackware 12.0 release candidate 1! If we're lucky, we got it all right the first time. Big thanks to the crew."

I remember when Slackware was more or less the only real "distro". I downloaded it into 40 (forty) 3.5" diskettes at the University's lab. This was year 1995 or so... :-)

But today I think it looks a little dated, or I don't have the time anymore. PCLinuxOS is looking great.

Bullshit!
If you have time to read and post on Osnews then you have time for Slackware!
