    Slackware upgrades every 6mos so the next tenth should be in June or July. It will upgrade kernels by default plus it gives options for newer kernels. I just givest the default kernel because they pride themselves on stability and they do extensive testing with the default kernel. Not to say a new one isn't good or even better they just give the one that they know is stable.
    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    My english isn't so good atm becouse I'm drunk and it isn't my mother tongue but I hope u get the point.

    I defenatly (dunno how it's written but...) recommend 10.1.

    Only trouble what I'ge got is how to get nvidia drivers working with my new 2.6.11 (default is 2.4.29) kernel

    On Slackware 10.1 is major updates (not the word what I was searching but) comparing to 10.0.

    Both are great but 10.1 is better imho.

    Slackware just rules.

    Currently I advice against Slackware because of the lack of official security updates since october 2004. I was a Slackware user since version 7 or so, but I am switching to Archlinux.
    I\'m so tired .....
