Other Distros with LFS ?

Once a user has his/her own LFS do they still use other distros ? Why ?

I use LFS on an old Pentium 2 300 box that also serves as a firewall/gateway/router for all the other PCs on my LAN. I use Slackware on my workstation. So yeah. Why? Well I use LFS (or a deriative of it) on the firewall box because it has such a small footprint, without all the un-needed bloat, and I have total control over what software and versions is on it. I use Slackware on the workstation because I still get the feel of LFS, along with a stable build environment, in alot less time, that's easier to maintain. Laziness plays a part in the workstation as well, I suppose.
