Slackware, Slax "Slackware remains Slackware. It's been around for a very long time and it has a very loyal following. It's an excellent choice for the Linux hobbyist who wants to build, configure, and tweak their system to the nth degree. Slackware certainly gives you absolute control over your system. Nothing is made to be easy or user friendly", writes Caitlyn Martin.

I knew GNU/Linux in its Slackware 1.0 incarnation, and though I've used Redhat, SuSE (now Novell and OpenSuSE), Debian, Mandrake (now Mandriva), Knoppix, CentOS, Fedora and Trustix, my home machine remains using Slackware (12.1 by now). It is the distribution that I am able to run more stable and faster. It's clean and simple, just KISS applied to the GNU/Linux distributions ... oh, I almost forget about it, I love the Slackware installer too !!
