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: Arch vs Slackware

You can perfectly install Slackware from one CD. Fact is that you can't fit KDE, GNOME and a usable GNU/Linux distribution on one CD. That's why KDE and GNOME are on CD2, but CD2 is by no means mandatory.

Yes, that is true.
CD2 only contain KDE and GNOME. CD1 already have XFCE, Window Maker, etc. so it perfectly suit someone who want to build a server (that needs X server, like oracle) and also someone who wants their desktop, but not KDE nor GNOME.

Fact is, Pat made an explanation on how to make 1 CD that contains KDE or GNOME only, or other combinations. So we can make our own CD set that suits our need. Very useful doen't it?
