No Slackware takers yet? This is possibly my favorite distribution. It's a very "DIY" style of distro.
My machine is actually Slack 10.2 with some heavy modifications ... I keep up to date with the kernel, waiting on 2.6.24. In fact, many times it's not convenient for me to "upgrade" to Slackware 12 because of the customizations I've made.
Much of the emphasis in modern distributions has been on the gui, user-friendliness, and usability factors. Being a huge command-line fan, I feel right at home with Slackware.
People will ask me, (wanting to try a Linux distribution out) "which one is best?"
Well if I could answer that, I could also tell you what type of car you would like to buy and what you'd like to order from dinner from a restaurant.
My answer is always the same ... try a bunch out and see which suits you best!
To be fair, I also do like CentOS and Debian as well. They make fantastic servers. My "guinea-pig" machine at home will always be Slackware, though.
Any other Slack fans?

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
