I've enjoyed playing around with Slackware on an older "junk" laptop. It runs smoothly and gives me an old-school experience on the command line with a fairly current KDE GUI when I want it. Unfortunately, Slackware can't be relied on as a production operating system without pouring extensive time and research into some simple tasks, like printing and playing DVD movies. Furthermore, googling the issues involved with making the system fully functional for some of these "ordinary" usages oftentimes returns ten year-old information. If you need an operating system that will "just work," it's easier to load Linux Mint or Ubuntu. If you're just trying to figure out Linux, then Slackware is a fine system.
