im on my way back after i install VL 6 kde. Was never a fan of xfce interface for some reason. Kde, gnome and e17 has been more my thing, but this was first slack-based distro that showcased gslapt-gui. And made slackware a breeze to use. Fast and feature rich. My only gripe was lacking in being able to upgrade distro, plus I was super nooby then. I know better now. Still use Ubuntu, but love VL's speed, simplicity, and stability. Also, I liked the way the devs moderate and their patience.
