Free Linux Distributions: Slackware

Postby asaf » Tue Apr 27, 2004 9:32 am

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.

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.
