hi - for my work development box i used freebsd (4 and 5) very happily for a long time.

then i was persuaded to move to debian 3.1/kernel 2.6. however, it runs slower, there are too many unresponsive "gaps" - redraws take a long time, desktop response takes too long to become active after leaving it idle.

both freebsd 4,5 and debian 3.1 were run on the same hardware (128MB RAM, 10GB disk) and using XFCE desktop with minimal daemons/services.

will slackware be any better?
