That one is new to me. Though another project I really like and also used is Salix.

Thanks, everyone - I think this one might go down as an all-time favourite. Really enjoyed the trip down memory lane. I’d give Fedora an honourable mention too, as the desktop version of Red Hat did morph into that when Red Hat moved to Enterprise only. I remember finding that to be a bit of a jolt at the time, because I had been using Red Hat from the days when it came in a box, with CD and manuals! Slackware was also my first though!
