I don't know anything about your experiences, nor would I claim to.
The point is: it is almost inconceivable a Slackware fanatic is going to
switch to a slow, bloated RPM distro. That's pretty straightforward.
I've never heard a story of a Red Hat expat coming back to his / her
original distro. Once the Linux user gets into Slackware, or Debian, or
a variant thereof, and has the chops to use it, they rarely come back,
if ever. I stopped using Red Hat and Mandrake a while ago and never
looked back unless I had to help someone else. (Russ and LinuxTLE, but
that doesn't really count because FreeBSD is sitting there now, plus TLE
is l33ter than regular RH)
And I just don't see the point of trying to belittle me. I have some
twenty colleges (including WUSTL no less) begging me to patronise them
and I'm a developer of a Linux distro at 17. I practically guessed my
way through FreeBSD by poking around in there. Do you really think a
little net-barb like that is going to sting that much? I'm just sitting
here listening to Black Uhuru with a dumb ass grin on my face.
