So what happens when you inevitably start distro-hopping?

Not going to happen. I tried a lot of distros when I first started using linux. There have been many times where I considered leaving Slackware and in fact used others for months at a time, but I always came back. At one point I realized I can't leave this distro; it just suits me.

Not so far-fetched or ironic as you might imagine. Before settling on Linux (and Slackware in particular), I used FreeBSD. Specifically, I admired the simplicity of the startup scripts in /etc/rc.d/, and wondered where I could find its equivalent in the Linux world, since RedHat and its ilk had (at the time), used Sys-V init scripts, which seemed to me to be an overly complicated way to start things (given recent events regarding systemd, one could make a case for RedHat deliberately making things more complicated than they need to be. They probably have severe symptoms of KOTH syndrome). The breaking point, for me at least, was when SuSE, when I tried to play an MP3 file, popped up a dialog box saying that there was a patent issue, and that I would need to install extra software to play MP3's, or something to that effect. That was it! I cannot now remember whether, at that point, if I dug out an old copy of Slackware, or merely downloaded a new copy (It might have been the former, given the very real possibility that I was on dial-up at the time. An experience best avoided, and with current technology, an ailment long since banished, thank God). After installing Slackware, and not knowing its philosophy at the time, with not a little trepidation, I clicked on that same MP3 file. Musical bliss immediately graced my ears, and it was then that I knew the distro of Linux that would, from henceforth, grace my hard drive, and course through the electronic veins of my computer.

All of this to say that the bsd nickname might be the best compliment that Slackware ever had, given its BSD-style init scripts, and simplicity of design.
