Slackware is one of the first distribution of Linux shared worldwide. Actually, it is the oldest already alive. It is the Linux distro I prefer, because it is the most secure.
Infact, the main characteristics are:
- Modesty: few packets ("What is is not, it will get not broken", Henry Ford)
- Ease: BSD organization (daemons start tidily, following scripts)
- Powerness: all diagnostic text tool are included (user can measure what is going and what is not, according to his profile on the system; and there is root, powerful like kernel)
