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."

Intuition depends on your broad experience and certain patterns your recognize. It's the common denominator you see. You're talking about PR of such companies like Microsoft or Apple - they make you think you will get something magical.

To make it short: anynone experienced with a real "UNIX" or more operating systems then todays "bling-bling-operating-systems" will have no problems with Slackware. That's experience, what you're talking about is faith in glimmer.
