Quote: Although I don't know if a "lack of package management" is necessarily a "plus" of Slackware.
It's personal preference. In my opinion, while we have tons of distro's with amazing package managers, having one solid distro with none (or a very minimal one) is a plus.
Personally I can't stand to have anything administer my boxes but myself. I understand that other people don't feel this way, and like apt and portage, but I think the whole Linux community could benefit having one distro that doesn't rely on a package manager.
