    Outstanding!!! We've been using Salix installations exclusively since the beginning (2010) and we now have an installed base of 1400+ servers and workstations, every one of them exclusively running a version of Salix. Not a single issue or a failure in 6 years. - Enough said! So, look to Salix... and live and learn. - Slackware+Salix, that is how it's done! Again; Outstanding!!! p.s. Gapan at al, we owe you guys at least a house, each :-)

    I started with Slackware in 1999. Ive been using Salix for about 3 years. I hate all other distros that aren't Slackware and friends. Salix is an amazing combination of Slackware, simplicity, and automation. I still like to compile my software form time to time; however, I also like the repository system for lazy days. I don't know if you've ever installed mplayer on Slackware 11 or earlier.... hunting down every required package and prerequisite to those prerequisites.... spending the entire night configuring and compiling code... Yeah, aint no one got time for that. So slapt-get is is pretty sweet. One program per task is a very nice way to minimize bloat and reduce the actual distro. Since Salix is so backwards compatible with Slackware, SlackBuilds work flawlessly. As a structured distro, Salix is pretty much identical to how I would setup Slackware through custom install. Xfce is my favorite, I typically only install one program per task anyways... I couldn't ask for a better distro. If you haven't tried Salix,
