Slackware, Slax Pat Volkerding has released Slackware 13.1. "We have chosen to use the 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 hit the real world."

Exactly. I figure it's better to run *some kind of Linux* than not at all, and if one is busy with work, kids etc.

I used to run both Slackware and Gentoo, now running a mix of the "easier" distros (Ubuntu, Fedora, openSUSE) - though as the kids are growing older and getting easier, thinking of going back to the Slack ;)

The thing to remember whenever the "hardcore purists" start saying, "don't use 'distro X' because it holds your hand too much" is...

Linus Torvalds uses Fedora (last time I checked).

If it's good enough for him, it's good enough for me.

Just use Linux and be happy we have choice!
