Slackware, Slax Pat Volkerding has released Slackware 13.1. "We have chosen to use the 2.6.33.4 kernel after testing the 2.6.33.x kernel branch extensively. Slackware 13.1 contains version 4.4.3 of the KDE Software Compilation. Several Xfce components have been updated as well. Xfce continues to be a great lightweight desktop that doesn't get in your way. If you haven't looked at this great desktop environment lately, you might want to give it another try. If you prefer GNOME, there are teams online producing GNOME for Slackware."

Because it still defaults to sendmail, instead of postfix?

Don't get me wrong - I have used Slackware for years, it was very stable, easy to administer, fast - but the distro sometimes shows signs of old age.

Well, sendmail is surely not the easiest beast to cope with, but it is as secure or insecure as postfix. But it's nice to hear the same old stories again and again :-)
