Slackware, Slax I was quite excited about the release of Slackware 10.1, the same way I was excited about 10.0 and versions before that. As a self confessed 'Linux Desktop Dabbler', to date, I've found Slackware my favourite Linux flavour to Dabble with.

I think Slackware is an excellent newbie distro if the newbie want to learn a lot about Linux. It installs in 15 minutes and the you´re dropped into a very clean and simple Linux system perfect for you to explore. If he/she just want a Windows replacement distro that won´t need any extra work it´s not the best alternative.
