OSNews: A Quick Look at Slackware's -Current Tree

Topic: security


There are a few reasons I have mentioned in the past as to why I prefer Slackware to other Linux solutions:

1. No patches on packages (unless absolutely necessary).
2. No unstable packages used, not even in the -Current tree (generally speaking).
3. No dependancy check package manager (and that's a good thing 'cause the third party packagers have some common sense regarding their releases).
4. Simplicity of design, configuration and usage.
5. Because of #1 and #2 performance is pretty good (comparatively) and stability is rated great.
