Slackware, Slax Yes, yes, Slackware has gone 64bit. "Ready or not, Slackware has now gone 64-bit with an official x86_64 port being maintained in-sync with the regular x86 -current branch. DVDs will be available for purchase from the Slackware store when Slackware 13.0 is released. Many thanks go out to the Slackware team for their help with this branch and a special thank you to Eric Hameleers who did the real heavy lifting re-compiling everything for this architecture, testing, re-testing, and staying in-sync with -current."

It's about time! Slackware was the first Linux distribution I tried, and I really liked it; lack of a 64-bit version was one of the main things that had kept me away from it over the last few years. I might start installing Slackware on my machines again!
