Slackware, Slax I chose Minislack because of the low requirements (running fine on my Pentium II - 400 MHz with 256 Mb RAM, 32 Mb swap, on a 1.5 Gb harddrive partition - I recommend 2 Gb, though).

RE: Why minislack?

Well, I think that both systems are usefull. Slackware is in my opinion a better choice for a server system, and Minislack adds many improvements for the desktop. Minislack is a young system, not perfect, but as I already said the development team is very active. And it's also very stable and well tested, so for a developement environment it's my choice. I run my servers (and my customer's servers) other Slackware, I use Minislack at home for coding, and my wife is happy with it for office work. Everybody's happy ;)
