In which way is this statement related to Slackware or Fluxbox?

Slackware is pretty fast. I heard Slax is which has less preinstalled software. I also heard that gentoo was fast but I couldn't get through the install. And LFS if also really fast, and good for learning Linux

sorry my mistake, i got confused by this

Slackware Overview
Slackware Linux is a complete 32-bit multitasking "UNIX-like" system. It's currently based around the 2.6 Linux kernel series and the GNU C Library version 2.7 (libc6). It contains an easy to use installation program, extensive online documentation, and a menu-driven package system. A full installation gives you the X Window System, C/C++ development environments, Perl, networking utilities, a mail server, a news server, a web server, an ftp server, the GNU Image Manipulation Program, Mozilla Firefox, plus many more programs. Slackware Linux can run on 486 systems all the way up to the latest x86 machines (but uses -mcpu=i686 optimization for best performance on i686-class machines like the P3, P4, Duron/Athlon, and the latest multi-core x86 CPUs).

That doesn't make much sense, since most of that depends very heavily on your hardware. Using the same applications on the same hardware should give you the same results, regardless of distribution, as long as the distribution is properly configured.

yes ofcs however u forgot one think... one very crucial think my friend, hardware doesnt understand applications he needs a translator and its up to you how fast and how well you can translate it to hardware and again you are the master of how should hardware read the translated application.In the end there are nearly endless posibilities.

ofcs you may say that i am wrong...(u actually dont have to translate anythink u can CALL for some retarded interpreter to interpret what u wrote, but for me thats freaking slow and useless), so compiling is slow,interpreting is even slower, changing computer architecture mby is a way but i dont have support for that, so what lefts? Speaking directly with hardware(more or less its still far from 0,1(electron in and out of tranzistor), but closer then anythink else) So ASM is WIN? YES! but theres one freaking tremendous problem... Windows NT 5.1 kernel is freaking buggy.... thats quite awesome when ur reversing somethink, but its tremendously depressive when ur writing somethink in low-level languages... and not just them, but in my cases i experienced more bugs on low-level languages then on compiled/interpreted ones(interesting). A few months back i was writing a quite big project(on NT 5.1 kernel) and when i wanted to run my app i got error wich doesnt make sense at all or i am not able to understand it..app crashed with memory access violation in the GlobalAlloc()... i have checked the application few times and its very unlike that i wrote somethink wrong, nothink in app should taint internal data structures on memory manager.... i had no app wich would anyhow restrict my access to memory... so what left is ... erm a windows bug? So lets tell microsoft to fix it? Well i guess they no longer support OS based on NT 5.1 kernel, but i bought their system so i want it fixed so Dear microsoft, mind u hand me source code of NT 5.1 kernel? I guess thats not the case.. so shall i reverse enginer whole system and debug it myself? i guess thats a possibility, but i am not allowed to by their License and also who on the earth is insane enought to do that... all the milions lines of trashy code(unless they wanna see how it shouldnt be done), so sorry microsoft i am moving to linux.
