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.
