I use Slackware on servers.
Zenwalk - is on my desktop.

Maybe Zenwalk is a little bit simplier and more friendly when speaking about desktop use.

I am self employed in an unrelated field. I have been using gnu-linux since 2006 and slackware solely since version-12.2 for work and pleasure (use MSxp for MYOB accounting only). While I am still a novice, I have learnt far more on slackware than all the others systems together.

I'm just installing Slackware 13 on a relatively old laptop of one of my colleagues. He was about to buy a new laptop as this one was REALLY slow (after using WinXP for 4 years on one install!!!). He only uses it for browsing/films/music. He was so relieved when I told him that he doesn't have to spend money on a new one. He was even more relieved when I added that he will not need to spend money on Norton Antivirus

For me, when Slackware64 came out, I really started to push for Slackware in our data center. Running 32bit was just not an option.

As of yesterday I feel comfortable enough with Slackware on my laptop that it I went ahead and set it as the default boot option. I'd been trying to get away from Ubuntu (which served admirably when Vista let me down for the last time!) with Salix, but it was a half step, and I just never trusted it. Having gone to Slack+GnomeSlackbuild my work days are full of Slackiness.

Yep, Slackware-current on my laptop in a biomedical research environment for the last 8 years! Although not officially, great support from the admins as well!
