KDE I've been investigating switching my desktop distribution from Kubuntu to something more... Seriously maintained. I love debian, and consider it one of the best distros out there, but Ubuntu's KDE variant is downright pathetic.

Have you? It's been around 5 years I don't use Slackware anymore, due to its package system. As Tess said, when you start to use apt-get, you simply can't quit to use anything else.

Talking about KDE, I tried to use Kubuntu, but (sorry Kubuntu guys, but it's my impression) it doesn't seem integrated as it should. And it's slow as well.

I've tried to use PCBSD as well but unfortunatelly it doesn't recognize my net card.

So, if Slackware is fast with KDE, I can give it a try.

Thanks.

You mean, lack of a package system. ;)

Having said that, I don't really find the lack of a package system to be that large of a detriment, because the base system you get with Slackware is usually pretty complete and extremely well-configured. A complete install usually comes with anything I'd use apt-get to install. Granted, a Slackware install will take up a decent amount of space for it, at least in comparison to other Linux distributions... but it'll still be fairly light, in the grand scheme of things. An 8 GB Slackware install (that number being pulled out of thin air) will probably be size-competitive with Vista or Win7 (for all I know), and I think most people with modern drives can spare the OS 8 GB.

Give a try to pacman, you won't be disappointed
