Do you use an old version of a linux distro and why

Yes, my firewall device uses an older kernel of linux, no gui or anything. And it runs bloody fast on a P2 233. I haven't seen the need to upgrade to a newer distro on that box as it doesn't have a cdrom or monitor or keyboard or any form of input device (i removed everything after it was setup). Also having things like gui would slow the box down and features of the newer kernel's aren't just worth the hassle to upgrade.Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

Slackware would be good for that also

Yeah, i was thinking I should put either slackware or gentoo on that box just to get more configuration options and also to alleviate boredom .Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

I have lots of old distro versions lying around but don't use them. I'm a bit of a bleeding edge OS/software kind of guy.
Of course you can run into hardware issues being on that end of the spectrum, too.
