Slackware side by side with OpenSolaris and FreeBSD, NetBSD

OS

I have recently heard of an ambitious project, called Menhir, which targets the noble idea of bringing Linux closer to its users and providing more information on each of its aspects. According to its creator, the project mainly searches to bring to the users’ knowledge information on all the four open source systems.

According to the founders of the Menhir project (but not only), it seems that Linux is now known mostly as a GNU distribution. The GNULinux expression has become almost the same with Linux, which is not true. Not completely, at least. There are also three other powerful open source distros which are worth all the users’ attention, as they can compete very well with any GNU version. I’m referring to FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenSolaris. Along these three exponents stands the famous Slackware distro, which is also interested in helping the growth of the Linux publicity.
