I can no longer conceive of using any distro other that Slackware. Its been 20+ yrs, 25+ if you count dual boot and multiple OS in multiple boxes... Stable for "real work" set and forget. Current to tinker and try new stuff. For me it just works and I still have a "Wow...look at that!" moment when I rediscover software I had forgotten about. I can get work done. I (re)learn stuff (I should REALLY keep a logbook...). The only times Slackware broke, it wasn't "Why did that happen?" but rather "Whoops...I should not have done that!" I wholeheartedly agree with Sufferin' Succotash's bullet points above.

How long have I contributed to Slackbuilds.org? Who says that Slackware doesn't have a software "repo"? That project gives me the warm and fuzzies and I greatly admire the founders and admins. Not only is the full Slackware install packed with useful software, SBo now adds the few specialty items in such a way that we can see and understand what goes into a binary package.

Heck, even my eldest son prefers Slackware. I'm so proud!

happy slackin' and everyone remember to kick a few $$ towards our BDFL.
