I changed to Crux from Slackware 8.1, there where some significant changes in how it was installed, you have to partition and mount everything by yourself, the ncurses setup program only installs the packages, after it finishes you have to manually edit the conf. files. This I saw as a bit of a challange at first but later on I thought it gave me a great freedom to learn what was going on behind the scenes. After it was all set up and done, thanks to the wonderful ports system updating and adding new programs was a piece of cake. A real nice distro which might be hard to learn at first but when you are comfortable, its a real good experience. Its also worth noting theres a good documentation covering the whole installation process.
