ericsbinaryworld.com/blog: When Slackware 13 came a few months ago on the LXF magazine, I decided to throw it into Virtualbox to see how it has changed. One difference this time around is that I now have the dual core machine so I am running Slackware on that machine.
pdg86.wordpress: I am a KDE fan. Besides the eye-candy, I love the KDE apps. This article is about what I did with my default Slackware install to make it more beautiful. I will be using Slackware 13.0 with vbatts KDE4.3.1 packages.
mysticalgr.awardspace: Following is a list of Slackware-based mini distro’s I’ve collected from various sources (wikipedia/distrowatch..) The need of such a list came when I was trying to find a Slackware-based mini distribution to install it in my usb pen-drive.
pdavila.homelinux.org: Well Slackware 13 was released a few weeks back and I had a chance to install it on my laptop. The install is pretty quick (as most Linux installers are these days). I’m not going to get too detailed so I’ll list what I liked and didn’t like.

zdnet.co.uk/blog: I think that the first "packaged" Linux distribution that I ever tried was Slackware Linux. I haven't had much to do with Slackware in quite a few years, though. When I saw the release announcement for Slackware Linux 13.0, I happened to be working on MMS (my MultibootMiniServer), and I thought it might be interesting to try it on there.
linux-mag.com: Linux Magazine spoke with Eric Hameleers (known as Alien BOB) about the 64-bit port and why users should consider switching to Slackware. As Eric discusses, this 64-bit release came from a ground up approach which has even managed to benefit the 32-bit build in the process.

techiemoe.com: Slackware. It's an institution in its own right. Some might argue that it's *put* people into institutions as well, out of either frustration or zealotry. Whatever your opinion may be about it, there's little doubt that it's a strong one.

linuxcritic.wordpress: I guess I probably shouldn’t be too surprised, because I knew that Pat Volkerding has been working with my least favorite desktop environment and it’s been in /current for a while now. But I guess a part of me still was holding out a childish hope that Slackware 13.0 release would be KDE 3.5.10.
slackware.com: Yes it's that time again! After many months of development and careful testing, we are proud to announce the release of Slackware version 13.0!

blog.jjtcomputing: Slackware has been a Linux distro I’ve never really been interested in. It is the oldest distro still going and really did show it in my opinion. It was difficult to use, unfriendly and fairly slow.
slackbook.org/blog: Today, Pat Volkerding published a massive amount of package updates to the slackware-current tree. Some of the absolute highlights mentioned in the ChangeLog are indication of a big step forward for Slackware, and most importantly: KDE 3.5.10 is gone, replaced by KDE 4.2.1.
ericsbinaryworld.com/blog: I’ve already reviewed some distros based off of Slackware such as Zenwalk and Slax. Along the way I’ve come to learn about some of the appeal of Slackware and why people would base distributions off of it. However, it does have a reputation as a very hard distro to install.
linux.blogs2k: Most of Debian and/or it’s derivatives uses apt-get to find the packages they wanted to install on their system. This is working as Debian has a very large repositories which contains lots of packages. The same goes with some other big distribution like Mandriva and OpenSUSE. What about Slackware?
