    I am looking for recommendations for a Distro


    What I want is a Distro that

    Is very up to date, and software archives are up to date
    Fast package manager
    Minimalistic, while having essentials and very easy installation
    Fast booting, and fast program execution
    Easy to use wireless internet, and usb Keyboard and Mouse
    Not Archlinux (bad installation history), and not Ubuntu (Definetly not minimalistic)

    I was looking at Gentoo, and Slackware, but apparently Slackware make it hard to install software.

    You could try Xubuntu, if you want a minimalistic distro.
    Linux Mint (Ubuntu derivate) can also be nice for you.

    And yes, Gentoo and Slackware and kinda hard to install and configure.

    Ubuntu is a bit bulkier but it's still quite fast, accomplishes the rest of your needs. Really easy to configure, most things work out of the box. Plus..it's Gnome which I personally like over KDE or the other alternatives
    Bodhi 1.3 & Bodhi 1.4 using E17
    Dell Studio 17, Intel Graphics card, 4 gigs of RAM, E17
