"A rule of thumb I'd recommend for those interested in trying out a Slackwaresque distribution: If you're looking for a distribution for server related tasks, go with Slackware.

If you are looking for a more desktop oriented distribution with a wider variety of recent packages, that is lightweight yet still able to do server related tasks, think Zenwalk."
