A friendly (but brief) look at Slackware 8 says it may not install pretty, but the few rough edges do nothing to stand in the way of the distribution's emphasis on stability and security:
"...I consider my user experience level with Linux to be somewhere shy of intermediate. But I remember installing Slackware Linux several years ago from floppy disks whose images took several hours to download over the blazing fast 14.4kbps connection I was using at the time. I did it on encouragement from a friend who suggested it would be easy. At the time it wasn't. It took me over two weeks before I got everything to work right. How things have changed.
