I love Slackware buyt started to think about it another day, why? Well Slack is not the easiest nor most user friendly distro out there but the administration is absolutely hassle free. So if you want to make sure, your system is maintainable and easy to configure then yes Slack is a good option. If you want user friendliness however then there are other options.

At work we have an option to use Ubuntu but I've scared away because there are countless tools for configuration and there are not those familiar config files on well-known places so I really don't feel comfortable using Ubuntu because if I need to tweak it to my taste then I probably spend lots of time and frustration finding the right places.

So it all comes down to fact, what are your expectations and what are you familiar with. I've learned Slackware and I am probably too lazy to learn anything else.
