I consider Slackware a very stable distro. Also since less things start up its leaves plenty of resources and speeds up your box. I never used current so can't say how stable it is. Its great for those that enjoy doing things in terminal and hand editing config files. In other words its a distro for geeks and not for the avg. user.
The same for me, Slackware is very stable, and when you get accustomed to Linux, after years you like to control all the parameters, the softs, exactly what you do, and so you end to like Slackware and to find it not so difficult, but in fact clear and easy.
