"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."
