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."

>Linus Torvalds uses Fedora (last time I checked).

Torvalds is no administrator or as smart as such a person, so finally he just cares about the kernel and has even his problems when installing Flash for his wife. So maybe this isn't the best example ;-)

In his opinion even Debian is too hard to install.

True enough.

But he *does* do real work with a "non-hardcore" distro, and without him, this discussion would be quite different, wouldn't it?

I suspect he was being coy with his Debian comment ;) I have no doubt he could figure out how to install it if he chose to do so.

I could install Linux From Scratch if I so desired, because I know how to read, but I've got better things to do with my time.
