I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware 12.0 – 14.1 and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk, SlackEX and Exton|Defender.

ExTiX 14 is currently in 14th place on Distrowatch.com’s “popularity” list (for the past seven days). Prior to such established greats like KNOPPIX, Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Arch, PCLinuxOS, CentOS, Ubuntu Gnome, Gentoo, Slackware, SUSE, etc.

I can’t help being a little pleased.

ExTiX 14 on DistroWatch.com

Posted 12-25-2013 at 09:21 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

ExTiX 14 has been on DistroWatch.com since yesterday. It helps. I mean, over 2100 downloads in one day! Only from Sourceforge.net. How many people have downloaded the ISO file from the Swedish Linux Society server I do not know.
