My first, and current, distribution was/is Slackware and I don't regret it so far. Sure, their package management system isn't as easy to use as say emerge or apt-get but I quite like the way it's done. Download the source code from the developers and compile so you get the program the developers wanted you to get. Other distributions supposedly *tweak* them somehow.
Though saying this I'm actually some sort of Gentoo LiveCD at the moment :P

The only distros where you don't get it by default, as I recall, are those with a more "Customize Me!" focus, such as Gentoo or Debian.

"Which Linux" is perhaps the single most popular question on this forum, so forgive me for being brusque here. There are many helpful resources available to those who don't know which to try. One good central repository for reviews, download links, and news regarding Linux distributions is DistroWatch. I suggest you start there.Registered Linux user #270181
