Just my 2 cents.

I have been using Slackware for 3 years and it happily coexist with my new Peppermint on my Laptop. I don't think stability is the main strenght of Slackware. It could be as unstable as other distros if you don't know what are you doing with your system. Slackware is for those who want to know what happens under the hood and it's KISS approach make it a good OS to learn Unix. Using Slackware as a desktop OS means spending times to read docs, configure system and installing packages. Unlike Debian or Ubuntu, Slackware doesn't have big binary repository. So, you should compile your favourites manually or use Slackbuilds for automating the build process. Whilst there are many third party repos for Slackware, they are not endorsed by Slackware and you should always take them with a grain of salt.
Having said that, I like Slackware. It forces me to read and improve my knowledge. But, sometimes you need a stable, more ready to use system to do your daily works and focus on your main business. That's why I use Peppermint.

Sorry for my english
