Slackware, Slax "Slackware remains Slackware. It's been around for a very long time and it has a very loyal following. It's an excellent choice for the Linux hobbyist who wants to build, configure, and tweak their system to the nth degree. Slackware certainly gives you absolute control over your system. Nothing is made to be easy or user friendly", writes Caitlyn Martin.

Absolutely. Slackware is easy once you know how and the help on linuxquestions, etc. is invaluable if not.

Once installed all I need to do is tweak a few of the (excellently-commented) config files install a few packages and then enjoy 8-9 months of rock-solid linux joy.

This might seem a PITA if you're a reviewer or distro-hopper but users who config their PC once then just use it Slack's a breeze!
