Slackware, Slax One of the oldest Linux distributions, Slackware, has pushed out another release. "Well folks, it's that time to announce a new stable Slackware release again. So, without further ado, announcing Slackware version 12.1! Since we've moved to supporting the 2.6 kernel series exclusively (and fine-tuned the system to get the most out of it), we feel that Slackware 12.1 has many improvements over our last release (Slackware 12.0) and is a must-have upgrade for any Slackware user."

"Slackware 7 was my first experience with Linux and I'm still thankful it was."

Same here. I started with Slackware. I've since moved into Debian since I find it to my liking. Slackware, as is Debian, a rock-solid and understandable Linux distro. Keep rocking on Patrick and all Slackware users!

You can, as is my method, start from a basic Debian install, read that as CLI, and then install anything else you want.
