Well, I can safely tell you that after using Slackware, I have almost no desire to try out any other distributions anymore. I've bounced around a lot, and Slack has everything I want.

Then again, Linux is extremely personal. Each user finds something different that suits them. My advice is to try around a lot until one grabs you.

I entirely agree and I think that's the experience of almost every experienced Linux user where "Slackware" can be replaced with a distribution name.

But once in a while I love to experiment outside my comfort zone if I happen to have some free time. After all, that's why I tried Slackware, played with it and got familiar with it, but decided against it on a day-to-day machine.

Of course at my work machine, I might use Slackware because I won't need too many "toys" to play and I basically feel the need for a Linux box to allow me to write technical documentation and maintain our company website.

Cool

The longer I use Slackware, the more I appreciate how logical, and well-designed the OS is. I also really like FreeBSD, but, Slackware will always be my primary operating system.
We are lucky to have a very dedicated group of developers and users that care passionately about the evolution of Slackware.
And come on..........Slackware is freakin cool:-)
