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 think this http://gnomeslackbuild.org/ is what the kids are usin these days. It used to be called FreeRock I believe. I'm not a Gnome user so this is from bits and pieces of mail list posts I've picked up.

Edit: hah. I wasn't even aware of xwmconfig. I just opened it up in vi and it's a shell script that either changes the symlink in xinit or creates a .xinitrc depending on whether it's a user or root that runs it. Patrick really has thought of everything eh.
