Well, as you may have guessed, I got fed up with Slackware. It's unfortunate because I thought maybe it would be a good distro to use. But, since it is the most Unix-like of all the Linuxes, I decided I should just go full-Unix. All of the BSDs can claim direct lineage from Bell Labs without all the AT&T proprietary bits. I've always had a fascination with Unix proper too. You need a specific application for it though, and as a server without any GUI is where it truly shines as an operating system. Everyone jokes about the year of the Linux desktop, but Linux really is the system you want to use for a desktop. Turns out BSD is a great choice for a lot of the other stuff that you need computers for.
