LXer: Ten reasons for giving Slackware Linux a go

Published at LXer:

Slackware Linux is one of the most powerful distributions available. But its power comes at a price. It's far less user-friendly than many other distributions. In fact, only Gentoo tops Slackware for difficulty. But if you avoid Slackware for those reasons, you'll miss out in a number of ways. Here are 10 of them.

That depends on the user - how much they're prepared to read, think, and adapt. I've not tried Gentoo (yet), but I've read the installation manual, and would say it requires quite a lot more know-how than Slackware. Not to mention patience.
