Slackware, Slax "I have very mixed feelings about this release of Slackware. I do not think that the underlying philosophy of Slackware is obsolete. The concept of a system that can be configured and molded to the n'th degree is still in my opinion very much a good idea. However, this release of Slackware is not without its problems in execution." Read the review here.

I've started to use Slackware since 9.1 after moving away from RedHat, although could not escape it at work ;) .

I really like the simplicity and so far have not found a compelling reason to switch to something else...

As for package management, the standard tools are just fine, but there is also slapt-get ;)
