everyone has a different view of this.
that's how i see it :
a) slackware is old, well known and good. it's a small distribution
(compared to the other two), and if you started with slackware, then you
don't have to re-learn : not much has changed in the years (compared to
tha drastic changed in debian and redhat).
b) redhat is a big distribution with modern techics. it's aimed at the
"new to linux" user, and secondary at the advanced and proffessional
c) debian is also a big distribution with modern technics. it's aimed
primary at the advanced and professional users, and secondary at the
"new to linux" users.
of course, debian has a special unique feature :
everything in debian is free. debian is not maintained by a company, but
by a group of developers around the world. and debian has a public bug
tracking system. but that's more a religious feature.
slackware is old, good, small and wellknow. it hasn't changed very much.
redhat is new, big and hype. build with primary target new user.
debian is new, big and hype. build with primary target professional user.
