 Taking Up the Slack(ware)

Linux Planet takes a look at Slackware 8.1rc2.

"So, what's wrong with this picture? The installation worked almost flawlessly. The applications and libraries are, for the most part, the latest and greatest versions known to be stable and reliable. The package names have been modified to mimic the RPM naming convention, and Slackare even ships with RPM 4.0.2, albeit unsupported."
