Slackware, Slax Slackware 11.0 contains the 2.4.33.3 Linux kernel (default), 2.6.17.13 in /extra and 2.6.18 in the /testing directory. This Slackware version is by far the most cutting edge ever released, it includes KDE version 3.5.4 (including the Amarok media player), XFCE 4.2.3.2, the latest versions of Firefox and Thunderbird, plus SeaMonkey 1.0.5 (replacing the Mozilla suite). It also includes glibc-2.3.6, gcc-3.4.6, X11R6.9.0 from X.Org, and more.

In a perfect world the OS would not need any security patches and would be maintenance free and etc etc
But in this real world Slackware's features and functionality make it is a good choice and a very reasonable compromise that fullfills 99% of functionality and security features for both servers and workstations.
That last %1 I'll gladly leave for the bortherline psychotic geeks that use their keyboard as a pillow.
