It was interesting... the latest issue of Linux Journal shows a pie chart
of most popular distros (based on info from the Linux Counter website - go
be counted!) and I think it went something like:

#1 Redhat
#2 Slackware
#3 Mandrake

For some reason, based on just talking to people, I would've thought that
Slackware'd be below Debian.  Now... nothing against Slackware (it just
/seems/ like not many people run it these days), but perhaps this is due to
a blossoming of people registering the Slackware boxes back when the
Linux Counter first appeared.

I know at LUGOD meetings, I often hear people say "I started with Slackware.."
