"The latest Slackware distribution (7.1) has just been released.
Slackware is one of the oldest surviving Linux distributions, and
remains today a relatively pure re-incarnation of what it was years
ago -- a roots-oriented Linux distribution which evokes the classic
BSD administrator "feel" while you work with your x86
"...unlike other distributions, which seek to eliminate the
complexity and nuance of Linux with menus and GUIs, Slackware hides
relatively little from the user. ... So this issue's QuickTip is
simple: if you want to learn Linux faster... consider downloading
the ISO images and giving Slackware 7.1 a spin."
