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.

Slackware is and always will be my main work station. If you can read the manual, you can install, set-up Slackware. Slackware is not only a distro for advanced users. That is a silly statement.
Heh, the lack of a package manager is a plus for me. Installing software in Slackware is simple.

# installpkg packagename.tgz
