Slackware was birthed in the early nineties, at a time when most people still built their Linux systems from scratch. This DIY philisophy is still a strong guiding factor for this distro, and as such, it makes a great system for the Linux master. However, describing it as "providing simplicity and ease of use" is highly misleading, as it most definitely is not when compared to most modern distros.

Until recently, Slackware was my primary distro, and had been for a number of years. Finally, though, the lack of a modern package manager drove me to make the switch (I now use Arch Linux).
