I would run the Oric-1 if it was still still available:

Perhaps Linux from Scratch. Arch looks fun too.

I love these threads, they get me Google-ing all sorts of OS's I've never heard of =)

I tried Arch. It's great. I think I would choose that. But I'm so used to Slackware. Frugalware is something I also will give a try at that time that is hopefully not to come.

OpenSUSE was installed here for less than 12 hours.. so was Mandriva.
I like Ubuntu and Windows for the everything-works-out-of-the-box reason so maybe I would use that,
But I suspect I would get fed up with it quite fast lol

I always wanted to try LFS, Gentoo, Arch and the BSD's, (but I'm to lazy) and like to think I would end up with one of those.

Of course, using the last Slackware and try to keep it updated with my own custom slackbuilds would be an option,
and a great way for me to learn a whole lot.

I've used Arch and the BSDs, but, I have yet to overcome inertia and attempt LFS or Gentoo. Perhaps considerable ale in the future may serve to motivate me. Praise Bob for Slackware.

it would most likely be something that's an offshoot of slack

Salix. But if the end of Slackware would mean the end of Salix too, i would probably run Debian or OpenBSD. (I am mostly using Slackware as a server.)

Since I am dualbooting Slackware and Gentoo and tried Arch for some month, I'll have to say that neither Gentoo nor Arch are stable enough. I think I would try the BSDs.

It seems that there is no more Apple in Heaven, since God gave the Apple to Eve and you all know what happened next. The Apple logo says it all.
Maybe you should go for BSD once you have moved on to Alien Pastures ;-)
