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 I do not think that the underlying philosophy of Slackware is obsolete.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.

only slackware

I've been using slackware since ditching redhat 9. Other then redhat I've only tried debian and gentoo but didn't stay there very long. I personally don't like automated package managers and slackware just "feels" clean. With slackcurrent and checkinstall it's the perfect distro, I feel like I have complete control. I can't imagine using anything else.
