A linux distribution distinguished by being particularly "bare-bones" Also well known for good security right out of the box.
My RedHat box got rooted, so I switched to slackware.

Better than red hat but harder initaly to learn.
Works great and is recomended greatly in computer security.

An open-source, free Linux distribution started in 1993 by Patrick Volkerding. Noted to be Unix-like, and includes desktop environments, server software, and terminal software from the CDs.
Comes as a four-CD set, though just one can be used to have a terminal-style installation. Disc two contains the desktop environment and a bootable rescue disk.
My Slackware server has served me well.
