First look at Slackware Linux 12.1

,----[ Quote ]
| All these points hint at an excellent (if not perfect) server and -- with a
| few tweaks and an occasional trip to one of the third-party Slackware
| repositories (see our Slackware page for a list) -- a fairly decent desktop
| system, especially for those who already know a thing or two about Linux.
| Slackware Linux also remains a great base system for custom solutions, as
| demonstrated by the many Slackware-based distributions that exists on the
| market. But overall, it's a mixed bag - a solid, stable and well-tested
| operating system, but clearly designed for the more knowledgeable user (or a
| user willing to learn) than the average Joe.


Linux : The whizkid on the software block

| Linux is perhaps one of the most interesting as well as challenging
| innovations in the history of software. Well, those who belong to the
| software industry and are hard core Linux users, can surely vouch for that.
| Available in more than 350 or more distributions, Linux surely has huge
| orientations and a large number of userbase going gung ho about the same.



Slackware [12.1] Release Announcement

,----[ Quote ]
| 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.



My thoughts on Slackware 12.0 *

,----[ Quote ]
| The installation of the NVIDIA driver for my platform went off without a
| hitch. *There aren’t a great many games for GNU/Linux yet, but there are a
| few to choose from when the desire to game hits me, and if the native
| GNU/Linux games aren’t enough, WINE works wonders. *I can generally play more
| games designed for windows than a Vista user. * *
| [...]
| Though Slackware takes a little bit more effort than many other operating
| systems to get set up and working, it is well worth the effort. *I have found
| my new favorite OS. *


Slackbuilds: A Slackware solution

| It's another great reason to run Slackware.


Slackware, the Un-Buntu

,----[ Quote ]
| Once again, Slackware is supposed to be complicated and hard to manage, but
| this experience proved to be different -- and very satisfying. In the Xfce
| printer settings, I selected CUPS to manage my printing. Then I went to CUPS
| configuration in the Slackware menu. *


Slackware: old warhorse is going strong

,----[ Quote ]
| The last time I looked at Slackware was nearly seven years ago; version 7.1
| was thrown my way by a magazine and I was asked for a review. My usage of the
| distribution had ended early in 2000 when I moved to Debian after using
| Slackware 4.0 and then 7.0 for about a year. *
| [...]
| I guess Slackware will have its band of loyal users; it has some good points
| and a certain kind of people like their Linux the way Volkerding has designed
| the distribution. Had the upgrade process been less cumbersome, who knows, I
| might still be using it. *


Slackware: Secure all the way back to 8.1

,----[ Quote ]
| Slackware provides security updates all the way back to version 8.1 along
| with 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0 and 12.0, so if there is a reason
| you're using an older version of Slack, it is still being supported by the
| distro's creator, Patrick Volkerding and his team. *


Slackware: There's something totally sane about it

,----[ Quote ]
| Did I mention that configuring CUPS printing for my difficult-to-dial-in
| networked printer was easier in Slackware than in anything else I've tried?
| I'm mentioning it now. *


Slackware 12 Review

| I'm big fan of Slackware Linux, I have used it since the 9.0 version, and
| I am very happy with this distribution...

| Here are some of the advanced features of Slackware 12.0: runs the
| version of the Linux kernel; system binaries are linked
| with the GNU C Library, version 2.5; X11 7.2.0...


Slackware 12.0 is released!

,----[ Quote ]
| That's right, the first 2.6(.21.5) based Slackware release is ready
| for download! We think you'll enjoy the latest kernel, KDE 3.5.7,
| XFce 4.4.1, HAL automounting for desktop users, an updated toolchain,
| and many other enhancements.

| I HIGHLY recommend Slackware 12 to anyone that has an open mind and isn’t
| afraid to maybe get their hands a tad dirty. Slackware won’t baby you like
| ubuntu, but you will learn a lot more about Linux with Slackware. *
