Slackware is deff an awesome distrobution, its something you wouldnt run in the corporate world especially if your managing many linux boxes, but is deff the best for learning, and using it as a hobby OS, very simple clean, and very easy to understand Not only that its the first real distribution to package a whole Operating system including the kernel and GNU base, the other thing that I really like is nothing really has changed since the last 9 years of slackware, except for updates.. Good work Pat..

I would agree in a general way. I learned on slack, and would consider it by far to be the best for that purpose. But I find it makes a good workstation computer, pat doesnt do what the majority of vendors do and custom patch the crap out of everything. If something isnt ready yet, he doesnt include it. The result is a suprisingly stable system with a real lack of those wierdo distro specific bugs.

But then again, I'm an ubuntu user now.
Cause I'm hip ;-)
