The slot screw drive has a single slot in the fastener head and is driven by a flat-bladed screwdriver. It was the first type of screw drive to be developed, and for centuries it was the simplest and cheapest to make. The slotted screw is common in woodworking applications, but is not often seen in applications where a power tool would be used because a power driver tends to slip out of the head and potentially damage the surrounding material. The tool used to drive a slot is called a slot-head, flat-tip,[3] or flat head.[4]

They are still around so you can use a different tool like your pocket knife when you are too lazy to go to the garage.

I agree with you on this one. The Robertson screw will snap before the tool slips and strips the screw head.
