I'm mostly a slide shooter, though I'm starting to appreciate B&W and put the occasional roll of B&W through the camera. Slides are for projection in my opinion, but they're kind of like sports cars - they look great, but if you don't know how to drive them, you may very well end up in the ditch.

Modern meters on cameras do very well determining exposure for slide film. Heck, a center-weighted or averaging meter can do well with it.
