*chuckles big time* As a nearly 73 yo, I have used Slackware (not exclusively, been a distro-hoe for years and years) since 1996. It is what I always come back to, I must have half-a-dozen slackware-on-a-stick given away to friends and foes alike. I don't care whether or not they see the 'light'. To my simple mind - there is nothing above it and nothing alongside - it is linux/unix the way it was always meant to be. My hat off to Patrick (and his able lieutenants), I will be forever grateful for their efforts.

I'm with you on those points - There is nothing perfect in this world, but Slackware, as an incarnation of Linux, which is itself an incarnation of Unix, is about as close as it gets. I turn on my computer everyday, and it works the way I want it to, every time. There's no nasty surprises waiting for me (ala Windows) or pesky updates needing immediate attention (ala Debian/Ubuntu or derivatives) or hellish dependency hell relating to package addition/removal (also Debian/Ubuntu and derivatives). Granted, Slackware requires a little more effort on the part of the user, but it is well-compensated in stability and performance.
