"Anyone with a significant interest in Linux distributions knows
about Slackware Linux, so I'm not going to spend a lot of time
talking about what it is, where it came from, how it has survived
(and generally thrived) through all these years. You could easily
write a book about it - hmmm, perhaps there is one, and I just
don't know it? I would summarize the whole thing with two
statements. First, the oldest Slackware CD I own is from sometime
in the early '90's, and second, if you are serious about learning
Linux, really learning how it works, how to install, configure,
manage and customize it, then Slackware is one of the distributions
you should be working with.
"The latest stable release, 13.1, came out at the end of May -
I'm a bit ashamed to say that it has taken me this long to get
around to installing it"
