DistroWatch.com: Slackware Linux

Slackware Linux

Last Update: 2017-04-28 16:20 UTC


The Official Release of Slackware Linux by Patrick Volkerding is an advanced Linux operating system, designed with the twin goals of ease of use and stability as top priorities. Including the latest popular software while retaining a sense of tradition, providing simplicity and ease of use alongside flexibility and power, Slackware brings the best of all worlds to the table. Originally developed by Linus Torvalds in 1991, the UNIX-like Linux operating system now benefits from the contributions of millions of users and developers around the world. Slackware Linux provides new and experienced users alike with a fully-featured system, equipped to serve in any capacity from desktop workstation to machine-room server. Web, ftp, and email servers are ready to go out of the box, as are a wide selection of popular desktop environments. A full range of development tools, editors, and current libraries is included for users who wish to develop or compile additional software.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 22 (441), 6 months: 30 (358), 3 months: 30 (338), 4 weeks: 37 (330), 1 week: 37 (321)

Average visitor rating: 9.62/10 from 42 review(s).

Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

since version 3.4 - with kernel 2.0.30 I've been using Slackware, my first contact with linux. Although with some troubles in the past, till these day I keep that distro on my main machine. I think the pros are stability, reliability and control. These qualities everybody knows. Cons remains mainly, at least for me, on installing new packages that isnt via slackbuild. Planning to version 14.2 at his time.

+ Very Stable
+ 'Easy' to maintain and configure (KISS)

- The binary repository is limited and is missing many modern packages.

although slackware linux is not popular one now, slackware is the most basic linux so far. when other distros are focusing on to improve their graphical view to appeal their distro to users, slackware have been concentrating their time and energy to develop their distro on a single direction, and therefore it's fame have never been changed over several decades. only slackware has it's unique features and it's the only one to be distinguished among those hundreds of linux distros nowadays.
