I compile a lot of customised software, then roll my own Slackware
packages, and install ;-) Used to run RedHat, tried Slackware 7.x,
returned to RedHat for a brief spell, returned and remained with
Slackware since 8.0. I _have_ to do a lot of custom compilation and
Slackware's packaging system makes rolling my own packages quick and
Each to their own ;-)
