Dependency-confessions of a slacker

[ Thanks to Hannes Worst for this link. ]

"Recently there has been a thread at the Slackware-forum (at linuxquestions.org) about the occupation of Slackware-users. It was expected there would be a great deal of IT-workers amongst them. But instead, the answers showed that there were all kinds of professions. It's not a uniform community.

"I started using Linux on my computer a couple of years ago, although I am not really a beta-guy. I have a degree in theology and at the moment I am working as a pastoral assistent in a R.K. parish in The Netherlands.

"Linux appealed to me because it's free in many ways, and has a lot of options for tinkering. I like to solve puzzles, look for patterns and structures in human thought and philosophy, hence my study of theology. Linux offered me a different but comparable challenge. My computer is fairly old (AMD-Athlon 1500+) and is being used by the entire family. I partitioned the hard drive as to install two Linux-distro's: AntiX and Slackware."
