LIP 16: Slackware 11.0 Farewell

Posted in Slackware at 4:50 am by serge

We say goodbye to the oldest living Linux distribution: Slackware. Unfortunately, our parting is bittersweet as we see much to love in Slack, yet some persistent hangs in X keep us from getting to fully explore this distro. We spend most of our time trying workarounds for this X problem at a cost of not being able to get wireless or sleep nailed down. On the plus side, the installer is solid, Vim 7.0 (console and gui) is there out of the box and the package manager is very clean. So we give Slack 3 out of 5 on our rating system.

Next up: Fedora Core 6.0. Be sure to tune in next week.
