Will try.

This sounds about as exciting as sticking fingers into electric sockets
on the wall. I think i'll pass :) I'm the kind of guy that likes words
like 'stable version', 'not under development' and 'bug-free' used in a
sentence other than "there is no stable version, this one is not under
development due to lack of interest and is most certainly not bug-free".

I like the way Slackware works :) Every now and then (say when new
kernel is released in NetBSD world) they put out new version with all
the tools one could desire built and decent portion of them tested.
NetBSD comes out with bare minimum of tools, just enough so you can get
a better shell and non-vi editor in under 6 hours and then proceed to
install other necessities. In a couple of days (depending on the speed
of your CPU) you might end up with computer that can do the usual stuff
one expects from it, like crash after 1 week of chewing up mozilla
sources with compiler error. Slackware OTOH isn't very upgradable (not
as much as NetBSD would be if pkgsrc worked as described in docs) but
then again who needs upgrades of working software ? :-)
