Slackware 12.2 Freshly installed with Main Workstation status here at> Tropical Central, Slackware is all what you expect - and all what you fear: upon start-up, you only end up in a terminal, keyboard layout is undefined... Well, it feels a bit barebone really. But then, you need something, pull the code from source and compiling wouldn't fail - alongside with Gentoo, Slackware is the sole distribution that I know where you can do that out-of-the-box. The ToDo list you end up with when installing Slackware is a bit longer than with some others, but this 12.2 one got me with working sound and network, playing flash anims, movies & music! Ok, my webcam and microphone aren't there yet, but who says that Slack was a MultimediaMonster? It's not; it's a full-featured, carefully crafted traditional distribution that is intended to feel, look and act as Linux was always meant to be. It feels good.
