I use mainly debian, but I also use Zenwalk in a small netbook I have.

Wink I use Slackware and Slackware (home brewed)

I use Slackware whenever a new release is made or I need a feature from current. Then I test it.

Then I compile a new kernel, glibc, mesa, and some other packages, and tweak the installers. (I used to compile gcc and more of the primal toolchain in the LFS fashion, but now I don't have that much time). Trinity/KDE3.5.x instead of KDE4.

Then I install it to my boxes.

So I qualify for "I use Slackware and another Slackware derivative not listed here".

A more accurate choice (not listed there) would be "I use Slackware and a tuned/tweaked/modified/home-brewed Slackware" or "I use Slackware and tune it to my needs".

Maybe I should do what you are doing, I've had a lot of trouble building Trinity, specifically the tqtinterface doesn't build. (I'm building from latest source.)

Sometimes I need portable Linux distribution -- especially when I want to run some Linux on my friends machines. Before I used Slax. Now I use Porteus.

I am using Slackware only. And my mother also uses Slackware. She used windows, but for some reason they kept breaking apart from malware, spyware, inappropriate use, etc. But Slackware holds together and even without smallest problems. Slackware is that good, I see no point in looking somewhere else
