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.

RE: the unfriendly distro

My main complaint about Slackware (which applies to Debian too) is that there aren't many books about it. On the other hand, a new Red Hat, Mandrake or Suse bible is published almost each year. It's like NetBSD versus FreeBSD.

In fact, the last Slackware book was published way way back by Cantrell et al. It's hard to suggest that distro to your boss without some sort of official, printed documentation.
