Free Linux Distributions: Slackware

Slackware 9.1 should be available soon. I will announce it accordingly. By the way, we also have RedFlag Desktop version 4 but haven't had success installing it.

Suse 8.1 is also available for free but it installs directly on a machine over the internet.

Among mini distros, we have Knoppix, Demolinux, Lunar, Devil-Linux etc.
If anyone has any other distro in mind, do forward it to us.

Regards

It is a very good Idea.

For people living in the Clifton Area,

And my sincere appreciation for this offer by Mr. Asif. :lol:

We need more spirited people like Mr. Asif in our group.

I will get in touch with him shortly. :wink:

Take Care

asaf,
This is a very good model. The blank CD/drop, pickup requirement keeps away the freeloaders, at the same time making the distros accessible.

Keep up the good work.

Slackware 9.1

Hi
Slackware 9.1 (4 CDs) alongwith Eadem 3.0 (5 CDs) Enterprise Linux are now available. Fawad thank you for appreciating the model.
