I used to like Slackware but moved to Ubuntu two or three years before. I
liked Slackware simplicity but its package system was too simple and then I
moved to FreeBSD. Some years before I had found Ubuntu and stayed there for
Linux boxes. Some people prefer Debian over Ubuntu but I dislike Debian
approach on packages (namely patch the older version as long as you can
instead of switch to a newer one).
