Slackware, Slax "Slackware remains Slackware. It's been around for a very long time and it has a very loyal following. It's an excellent choice for the Linux hobbyist who wants to build, configure, and tweak their system to the nth degree. Slackware certainly gives you absolute control over your system. Nothing is made to be easy or user friendly", writes Caitlyn Martin.

I find Slackware one of the best distros. It's actually easy to configure and use. The only reason I'm using Arch is that I'm lazy and want to use GNOME without any hassle.

Actually I kinda think of Arch as Slack with a nice package manager.

I couldn't agree more. I used to run Linux From Scratch some years back, then moved to Slack and finally to Arch. To me it goes like this:
LFS - pure linux
Slack - pure linux, precompiled
Arch - pure linux with good package management
