I've noticed quite a few people on the user list say they use / used to 
use slack, and I'm one of them. (Right now updating to -current on an 
old laptop that doesn't work with ubuntu.*)

Easy to install, fast, light, stable; first linux distro I could use. 
Loved it so much I even bought the box set.
