Haven't even tried Salix?  I can't believe it!

Try out the new Slacko64 6.3.0 at the least and post your impressions of the first 64-bit Puppy Linux based on Slackware.  Plz!

    I tried Salix OS before, and it wasn't bad, but never tried Puppy though.

    I installed Slackware (don't remembered version) on Virtualbox few years ago, but have no time to explore and enjoy it - i hope i will do it in near future, I think I used to like it - unfortunately, I havent managed myself to do it during the Christmas holidays.
    So, few questions - what is default DE/WM on Slackware, is it stable or rolling, and if stable, how often the software packages are updated? I heard about slackbuilds, it seems to be something like Archbuild from Arch?

    I ran Slackware 14.1 for a few months.
    A few weeks back, when Slackware 14.2 was announced, I also tried Slackware's "-current" Branch for two weeks, until i switched again (mainly because of incompatibility of most slackbuilds).
    Might give it another spin, when 14.2 is actually out :)

    I am thinking very seriously to switch after many years from Debian to Slackware...
    As a slackware user what would you suggest as benefits of this distro?

    I really don't like slackware. You have to manually get dependencies. Thats just not my type of distro.

    yeah i have to do that sometimes, but thats for my own remastered iso. when im actually using it, i can apt-get at least in refracta mode. updating puppy to the point where apt-get works as expected, not easy. but isnt there a package manager of some kind for slack, even one based on apt syntax? slapt-get? they still have that?

    I've heard from @bulletfreak that slapt-get will break your system.
