Why not install the original slackware? Heck, you will get KDE for free with slackware...

It is curious that people doesn´t ask that for debian or mdk based distros.

Anyway, you could find many reasons to choose VL instead of Slack, as with any distro, depending on what you are looking for.

Long story short, VL can save you plenty of time if you are looking for a fast desktop solution. I also find it a great learning experience. And the community is suberb ;)
