Salix OS 13.0.2a: Surprisingly Fresh

,----[ Quote ]
| Salix is a solid distribuiton built on a 
| Slackware foundation. It does what many among 
| the Slackware faithful would consider heresy: 
| makes Slackware behave more like a modern 
| Linux operating system that's simpler to 
| install and manage. I for one welcome our 
| heretical Bonsai overlords.
| If I'm ever in the mood for a lightweight 
| Slack-based distribution with minimal fuss 
| involved, Salix has made my short list. I look 
| forward to seeing future releases from this 
| group.



Salix OS 13.0.2 Gets 64-bit Edition

,----[ Quote ]
| George Vlahavas from the Salix OS development
| team proudly announced two days before
| Christmas that Salix 13.0.2 was available for
| download on mirrors worldwide. The good news
| for all the fans of this Slackware-based
| Linux distribution is that it now has a 64-
| bit edition, which is backwards compatible
| with the Slackware64 operating system.
| Salix64 offers an easier way to install the
| XFCE desktop environment, and a software
| repository with lots of packages. The Salix
| developers also prepared a software
| repository with dependency information for
| both 32-bit and 64-bit Slackware packages.


Salix 13.0.2 is ready!

,----[ Quote ]
| The Salix team is proud to announce the
| release of Salix 13.0.2. The most important
| change this release brings is the addition of
| a 64-bit port of Salix! As the 32-bit
| counterpart, Salix64 is fully backwards
| compatible with Slackware64 and provides a
| simple and fast way to install an XFCE based
| system that follows the one-app-per-task
| philosophy. The 64-bit repositories already
| include a considerable number of packages,
| making it the largest third party package
| repository for Slackware64 users available!
| The Salix team has also created and maintains
| a repository that includes dependency
| information for all Slackware packages, 32
| and 64-bit.


Branching Out With Salix OS

,----[ Quote ]
| I'm genuinely impressed by Salix, although I have to admit
| that it doesn't seem greatly different to Zenwalk in
| either use or construction.

| As far as Zenwalk is concerned, version 6.2 cements its place
| as one of the most highly-respected and well-liked
| distributions. As for Salix OS, well, we shall see.


Former Zenwalkers Do Salix OS Fork

,----[ Quote ]
| The end of May the Zenwalk team came to some disagreements with its
| project lead Jean-Philippe Guillemin and some other team members.
| The result is a new distro called Salix OS.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
