Age of LQ Member Using Slackware


I was intrigued by the mature age reported in recent months by several regular members to this Slackware Forum. Perhaps the stories about Slackware being the preference of older Linux users has some truth to it.

Let's take a quick snapshot and see how our member's ages are distributed. No need to identify yourself unless you are proud of your age.

Well this is a nice change At age 50-59 I'm actually younger than 60% of those who have voted so far. I dont often get the chance to be on the younger side of any demographic. The knees may be the second thing to go after all, it looks like the first may be ones tolerance for BS

Since this is anonymous...

A family of full-time Slackers:

Myself - 61
Wife - 54
Son - 26
Daughter #1 - 23
Daughter #2 - 20

Unfortunately, most of our computers and cars are in the same general age grouping!
