Description: "Absolute Linux 12.2.2 released. This release brings kernel 2.6.28.7, autoinstall defaults to ext4 file system. (Regular install allows for ext3 and ReiserFS as well.) The kernel, for now, is the Slackware 'hugesmp', so it is Slackware 'stock'. Waiting for feedback to see if users like this or would rather get specific configuration tweaked. The large number of changes along with imminent bump in X.Org led me to go with the flow for now in order to allow easier input from Slackware-compatible repositories. In addition to the new kernel there was a very large number of applications, as well as library updates -- so installing via GSlapt is not advised."

Pros: easy to install, no bugs found so far
Cons: could have more applications, even with slackware less than Vector



I just recently installed Absolute 12.2.3 and so far I have nothing to say bad about it, Install was easy, everything worked first time. It is quite fast. It only comes with IceWM so you get to choose what to install.
