Distribution: slack current with 18.104.22.168 (still off the hook)
I run them both and Slack 9.1 I installed it on reiserfs as well. I don't know how much difference that can make but I found them pretty much the same speed wise but as Win32Suck said is smoother, Gnome 2.6 rules....
The GUI almost the same thing and the core no difference at all...
that question is impossible to answer. why would slackware 9.1 be faster or slower than slackware 10.0 all slackware does, is update older versions of programs with newer versions and occasionally add/remove some programs. perhaps version 2.0 of program X which is in 9.1 to encode video is faster that version 3.0 of program X which is in 10.0. But at that same time version 3.0 of program Y to view emails in slackware 10 could be faster than version 2.0 of program Y in slackware 9.1. it's all very relative.
having said that, I have the latest and greatest 10.0 so I am special :-)
I'm special. Really, I am. I think I'm special anyway...
I can't really tell any significant difference in speed between the two. Boot is faster in 9.1. X.org vs XFree to me did not make a significant difference. And I use FVWM most of the time so can't really comment on KDE or Gnome.
