Different Slackware "Flavors." MiniSlack, Vector, Slax, whatelse?
Basically the only distros I've really liked have been Slackware based. Is there a list somewhere of all the Slackware-based distros? What other Slackware-based distros am I missing? :lol:
First babbled with Linux ~ spring '04. The first disto I got around to trying out (besides checking out Knoppix 2.4), after a good bit of thought, was Slackware10, despite none of my Linux peers were using it.
Both loved it and (sort of) disliked it. I was a great first distro for me to learn on, but some things like having to setup my monitor res and refresh and such kind of annoyed me. I guess I was expecting a little more from Linux (which I eventually found). I never did get around to setting up networking and therefore no internet. The result was that it was not frequently used.
Fastforward to Christmas break... After trying a few other distros, but never finding anything I really liked (Ubuntu is too slow for me), I then discovered Vector Linux, remembering a friend of mine mentioning it long ago before I got into Linux as a distro I should check out and learn on (The same reason I first chose SW).
I'm playing with MiniSlack now too - awesome how much progress Xfce has made since just a year ago. Liking Slax as well and planning on installing SW v10.1 shortly to see what all has changed.
Basically the only distros I've really liked have been Slackware based, and so my question is provoked.
