Last slashdot poll about "favourite distribution" gave the following

1.- Red Hat (46%)
2.- Debian (20%)
3.- Slackware (16%)
4.- SuSe (7%)
5.- Caldera (1%)

(Total votes: 11473)

I guess the poster in COLA should check his numbers...

As a side note, I would like to know what does Slackware offers that
Debian doesn't...  perhaps we should try to "market" our distribution to
those old Slackware die-hards. Hey, I was one of those a long time ago. ;-)
