My workstation OS: Slackware Linux

Slackware was my first Linux distro and I still run it on one of my machines.
Did you ever try to find the text file for network configuration in SUSE without the help of YaST? Did you ever wonder why the System V init tree is so complex? Everything has its pro and cons. I prefer the simple way Slackware developer Patrick Volkerding put things in place. For example, to start a service at boot time, just chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.service. BSD-style init scripts can also contain settings, and that's what Slackware uses with the network interfaces. Another sign of good system architecture is the place where the KDE is installed. Usually KDE is splattered all over /usr, but not in Slackware. There is a single /opt/kde directory, just like the developers wanted it to be.
