    I really enjoyed reading that article. I will be sharing that with a few on my Slackware friends.

    I've been a Slackware user since 1993. I still have the floppy disk I made back then. I have tried many a distribution over the years but always turn back to Slack. I have five computers and three of them are running Slackware/Slackware64 13.0.

    And there it is - "if you use Ubuntu, you'll learn Ubuntu. If you use Slackware, you'll learn Linux."
