Linux After reading a discussion on DistroWatch asking if users were happy with their current distribution, I noticed a common thread of those who have had similar experiences as myself with juggling various Linux distributions. Like myself, they feel many Linux distributions are great, but no one quite feels like home. None of them quite fit the bill and they may even begin to think that every OS sucks.

Slackware
by Johnny Wad on Tue 10th Feb 2004 21:08 UTC

I did the distro shuffle as well, but after trying Slack almost a year ago I was set. I have had other distros run successfully for me, but there is just something about Slackware that seems more personal than the other distros. I like the way it boots to command line by default, but can still outperform other distros in the GUI. The more slacksters i run into the more i realize my story is all to common. Not to take anything away from any other distro, but for the most part those who try slack love it and stay with it. Those who don't use slack never have.
