A review of any Slackware distribution is difficult because Slackware just isn't for everyone. Slackware in general is not a hand holding distribution. There won't be any fancy GUI's with buttons that magically make everything work. Slackware gives you a Linux system, and makes no assumptions on your ability or lack of ability to use it in the way you want. In today's world where all the work is hidden behind a pretty touch screen button, Slackware may seem outdated. But there are many who not only want to know what happens when that button gets pushed, but wonder if they could do it better themselves. They are the people who might not necessarily mind a pretty user interface to handle regular administrative work, but they are also just as comfortable, or at least not afraid to learn to do the same job in a terminal, from the command line. Slackware 14 continues the trend of not dumbing down Linux, but insists the user aspires to become smarter than the equipment he operates. It's a great distribution for anyone who wants to progress beyond simply using Linux, and become a user who knows Linux.
