20 years of slackware ( as of 18/07/2013 ;) )

Slacker Boy

Yeah I know it is a bit late, it was 20th birthday of Slackware on this 18th. Got to know about this while reading through linxquestions.org.

Slackware was the first Linux distribution that I installed in my old desktop and since then I am in deeply love with it. I learned a lot by using it, which was always thrilling.

This was Patrick Volkerding’s post about first release of Slackware :

Well, that's good, because I put one together. It does not yet have
XFree-86 1.3, but give me about 2 days and it will. This is not like the MCC release…
