Slackware isn't ever likely to be as popular as other distros. Perhaps thats why it appeals to me...

In LinuxQuestions yearly poll results, Slackware is not at all irrelevant:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/2012mca.php
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/2011mca.php

etc...

I stand corrected. Coming from other distros I assumed that Slackware was less popular in terms of numbers. I'd never call it irrelevant though. Indeed, its becoming more relevant day by day and I'm personally loving it...

To be fare LQ is an official stomping ground for SlackTM and near the top for me (should for everybody like Debian ;D) but for some reason the LQ-MCAs do not allow multiple choices!?.
