Comment Congratulations Slackware (Score 2) 183

I am a Debian user. I have experimented with Slackware. Most recently I installed Slackware 13.37. But after a month I went back to Debian simply because I prefer to work with apt-get. I am personally more efficient with Debian. Having said that Slackware has been around for a long time. People who use it don't just like it...they love it. Slackware must be doing something right. My personal experience is that the community support on IRC #slackware is outstanding and must be one of the reasons for the distro's longevity. So Congratulations to the Slackware community!

Submission + - What would you put in your Forensic Toolkit?

felixdzerzhinsky writes: I am putting together a foresnsic toolkit for work. What would you carry in your Forensic Toolkit? What operating system would you install on your laptop? I would need to be able to run Windows XP Professional in a virtual machine. I would also require an os with the capability of fully encrypting the root partition. What software packages would you install? I am interested in both open source (Linux,BSD, OpenSolaris, etc) and Windows XP packages. Is anybody using OpenSolaris as a forensic platform?

Let's organize this thing and take all the fun out of it.
