Slackware 13.37 is leet, not Natty and that's how I like it.

Slack

I have to admit that it has been more years than I care to remember since I last installed Slackware on my desktop.

The slackware 13.37 release came out this week and due to its excellent timing, it's now on my (multi-boot, thank GRUB!) desktop. You see, I also had Ubuntu on the multi-boot, but the Natty Narwhal doesn't seem to like my graphics hardware, memory, hard-drive or CPU. So you could say that slackware 13.37 threw me a lifeline.

I moved away from slackware years ago to Red Hat (when it was Red Hat Linux), because Anaconda was easier to use as an installer and RPM was the greatest thing for packages.

Slackware 13.37 is a different animal
