Slackware is a great distribution.  So are all the other distributions.  
Red Hat has the largest market share so more people are using it.  Also 
Red Hat tends to attract more newbies because it appears a little easier 
or has that reputation.

The newbie@xfree86 list probably isn't the best place to start a 
distro-flamewar.  These are always non-productive, convey no information 
to anyone and waste electrons.  It'd be best if we all concentrated on 
helping each other sort out problems where we can.

Sorry if this post sounds a little rude, but I'm sick of 
distro-discussions.  Let's keep it technical and help each other out 
instead.  (Otherwise the *BSD people will triumph ;-)  )
