What about: "I am a Slackware user and I don't use any Slackware derivative"?

I forgot the most obvious option, the one for people using only Slackware, but i cant seem to be able to edit the poll. You may say so in comments.

edit2: I'll try to keep track of those users on the first post, at least for the first few days.

edit: PS. Poll is multiple choice enabled. You can eg. vote i use a derivative as a live medium and riplinux.

You can't improve slackware. Why use a spin off when u can use the real thing.

Very true, only thing is due to sometimes needing a live bootable usb stick...

Slax and Porteus as Live-CD in Windows-networks as rescuesystems. And Slackware at home for sure

Well slackware is the real thing. It keeps out of your way but then sometimes you have to help a friend or a family member out and you are not available 24x7 for them. In that case it is a lot easier if you install something that might provide some degree of control (gui based).
In these situations I think Vector is the best.

I only use Slackware. If you answer to this poll, in this forum, that you are instead using a Slackware derivative, you should reconsider your options.

There is no such option in the poll. The only requirement for voting is being a Slackware user, its explicitly said on every one of the available choices.
I somehow missed listing the most popular option, but i am documenting every Slackware only user, but i realise not having the tick might prevent some users from voting by posting.

I can't give the right answer to this question either. I have salix on a CD and I even copied the CD on to my hard drive and included its kernel in the lilo menu (I have experimented like this with other live distros). Although I have mucked around with salix to see what it was like I could never say that I use it.

So include me in the "Slackware Only" category.
