Slackware, Slax Pat Volkerding has released Slackware 13.1. "We have chosen to use the 2.6.33.4 kernel after testing the 2.6.33.x kernel branch extensively. Slackware 13.1 contains version 4.4.3 of the KDE Software Compilation. Several Xfce components have been updated as well. Xfce continues to be a great lightweight desktop that doesn't get in your way. If you haven't looked at this great desktop environment lately, you might want to give it another try. If you prefer GNOME, there are teams online producing GNOME for Slackware."

It is a wonderful distro and I hope you find it enjoyable to use! A little tip about keeping it up to date, check out slapt-get. Last I heard swaret (a similar tool that I considered superior back when I used Slackware regularly on my desktop) isn't really maintained much anymore, though a Google search seems to indicate someone patched it to work with v. 13 at least. In any case, the last time I tried out Slackware (probably 11 or 12, I doubt it was 13) slapt-get worked just fine.
