I've been trying different distro's and I like debian and all, but definately like slackware more. Too each there own I guess.

I have to admit that I have tried (and am trying) other distros, but I always return to Slackware. I feel much less constrained under Slackware, using rpms, debs, etc just doesn't work for me any more - using source packages for everything makes more sense for me and I find it easier to work with.

The great thing about Linux, though, is that we are all catered for and there is a distro for all of us.

Almost forgot!
Slackware is the closest to FreeBSD distro. Here I find very good reason to use it

i'm an old UNIX dog.. i cut my teeth on Unisys UX, and SCO OpenServer..

slackware is the truest to form ov the original SVR4 (system five release 4) that ive ever seen.. i have tried -several- distros, and always end up slapping slackware back on/over it...

POSIX - GNU true..

yay..
