Slackware, Slax And Slackware too puts out a test release. Patrick writes in the changelog: "OK, we're going to call this Slackware 12.1-rc1, though there is still some more minor work to do." So there. Just so you know.

I think anyone who started using Linux during the 90's has a special place for Slackware. Granted, I no longer use it as I'm now a Debian user but it certainly has its place in the ranks of today's distros. Slackware brings back fond memories of when xmms was king, netscape was THE browser and GNOME still had that big foot for a menu lol.

Yeah, I remember those times. I started out using Redhat-7.0 and FreeBSD-4.3 and ended up dropping Redhat for Suse-8.0 which led me to Slack when Novell took over. So now I'm just a Slacker with a BSD finish.

I really like Debian... I keep it on a spare box, but I never understood why corporations don't implement it more, I think it's very competitive with FreeBSD and Microsoft in the server market.
