It washes whiter, kills all known germs, is less fattening, and contains no artificial additives. May contain nuts, though.

Next time I might report for serious humor overdose (spilled my coffee; wiping the screen...)

Also nothing to add there either

Contains? Maybe not.

Attracts? Certainly! After all, I'm here posting away.

my first reply was non serious (I mean -seriously?) but here comes what i really admire on Slackware and miss elsewhere the most:

1. The distro splits in a perfect way (in my view) what's serious business and whats users whims - the releases and updates are rock solid, on point and on time - no fuss, no bells and whistles - just rock solid every time.

2. The OEM (our BDFL ) just does not succumb under pressure of an rushed out release - we never suffered consequences of that (yet) on Slackware

3. There are places where we the mortal users still can contribute to the distro and our voices are not only heard, but they count.

4. Only in Slackware, one can submit one off useful contributive work and the only condition is it to be on par with the (admittedly high) standards of he distro for it to be included. And it gets to be included, provided it is useful and sane. This makes Slackware even more special to me.

5. It's Slackware - a distro you can't install by mouse, mistake or error; Running Slackware still means you are doing it, and You better be knowing what You're doing or You soon be in trouble mister!

6. The community here on LQ is beyond praise - coudn't do without - LQ actually lifted my personal standards elsewhere

Could you please elaborate a little on this final point? I presume you're specifically commenting on the Slackware forum?

While i must admit the Slackware forum is where i dwell the most, the other forums are quite few notches above most sites elsewhere on the internet.

Bright exceptions being stackexchange.com and maybe half a dozen of others.

And being here, taking part of the LQ community taught me ways...

Why You ask, don't You find it so? Does this come as an surprise to You?

One thing I also forgot to mention:

Slackware feels like an OS. Scratch that, Slackware *is* an OS!

While all other distributions feel like, well, *distributions* (cobbled together from thousands of semi-broken parts), Slackware is so well integrated and put together like it's all coming from the same tree, like in BSDs.

Ditto. What I like most about Slackware, other than that which has already been mentioned, is that it remains true to its roots. The same man who started Slackware is still running it, and by the same principles by which he started it. Also, the community is still the primary driving force behind improvements to the distro, and Pat V. actually listens to them! How many other distros can you name which have done the same?

n+1. Slackware has zero corporate vested interest
n+2. Slackware is as Linux as it was from day one (many others can't say that for long time now)
n+3. Slackware is about users as it was from day one - not about trendy stuff and bells and whistles
