Slackware, Slax Pat Volkerding has released Slackware 13.1. "We have chosen to use the 2.6.33.4 kernel after testing the 2.6.33.x kernel branch extensively. Slackware 13.1 contains version 4.4.3 of the KDE Software Compilation. Several Xfce components have been updated as well. Xfce continues to be a great lightweight desktop that doesn't get in your way. If you haven't looked at this great desktop environment lately, you might want to give it another try. If you prefer GNOME, there are teams online producing GNOME for Slackware."

I used to be like that, back in the mid 90s when I was a young, naive CS student excited about breaking and rebuilding my Slack, Redhat, and Debian installs. Then a funny thing happened... I hit the real world. I realized that as much fun as I had doing those things and as much as I learned, it's just not practical for the guy who really just needs his system running so he can so productive work.
