Slackware on my high powered and much loved desktop machine. Debian squeeze on my boring work Laptop, Debian squeeze (Only thing I could find a SPARC port of) on my rebuilt Sun Sparc server I found in a bin.

Slackware only.

Unless you want to count a MiniCD with RIP installed on it.

It's strictly Slackware here. Everything else seems wrong after experiencing Slackware.

I've toyed with Vector (interesting...but too far removed from Slack for me) and Salix (VERY nice if I must say) but always come to the realization that at least for me, you really can't beat the original.

I don't "use" anything but The Mighty Slack.
However I occasionally mess around with Salix out of curiosity..

Resources is kinda limited so can't mess around with others.

I am a Slackware user and i also use RIPLinuX.

I use RIPLinuX for rescuing data from failing HDD's or just to clone them and removing viruses from MS boxes.

Ahh, then why you have a wee MS Windows logo in the corner?

Slackware only. I do dabble a bit with others to keep up on the tech. However, I only *use* Slackware. Except of course for this stupid Windows laptop my employer forces me to use. Can you believe our VPN web portal *requires* MSIE 6. Egad, man!

Hey, what the...stop...Get down! OFF! Bad Windows...BAD!

Thank you all for voting, next time i make a poll like this one i will try not to forget any options and write instructions on how to vote.
Even i didnt vote the way i wanted for other people to do so in this poll.

My motivation for creating it was that i switched from using system rescue cd as a live recovery medium into riplinux, since a Slackware system is much more familiar to me than a Gentoo one.
I was wondering, since Slackware doesnt have an official live CD, if other people choose any of the derivatives for that purpose as well.

Salix and Zenwalk are both great imo. Salix is more closely tied to Slackware. Zewnalk tends to be a bit more up to date while retaining the stability that Slackware is known for.
