Different distros come compiled with different software, package managers, desktop interfaces, etc. It's really a subjective thing, as suggested here before give a few of them a try in a Live environment and see which one peaks your interest the most. If you are new to Linux, distros like Slackware and Arch may be a little complicated at first. I think the best for newbies at Linux are distros such as Mint, Ubuntu (and variants) and Zorin to name a few. At the end of the day, it's up to you!

Slack has variety of DE's you can install and the install process is pretty straight forward give it a shot..
The "de facto" Slackware forum,

Nah.
Since we are in the "Linux - Newbie" forum I thought it might be a good idea
to point the guy in the right direction (the Slackware forum).

Did the guy in germany just call someone a grammar nazi?

I think the whole of LQ is sort of slackware based. That's why any poll done here about the favorite or best distro always ends up with Slackware at the top!
