So far, the distribution across the 20s,30s,40s,50s categories all seem pretty equal. Interesting to note that no one younger than Slackware itself has admitted they're using it.

Interesting that I'm probably youngest one so far. Just turned 20 a few weeks ago.

Tip: Slackware includes what you need to decode that.

I'm only just in category 7 but what the hell - been using Slack since version 0.9!

Nice to see how lively this forum is still - haven't visited Linuxquestions in ages (I look after lots of other Linux distros, FreeBSD, Solaris & its clones and Tru64 stuff even for a living) but came here today after running into a problem with installing Slack64 14.0 after I rebuilt my old 32-bit Slack 13.37 PC with 64-bit mobo, SAS controller, etc.

I'll hit 65 later this year. Slack keeps my brain young though.

36. Although I'm not an active full time user. I install it probably once a year, use it for a time, realize that I don't enjoy having no automated dependency resolution, and replace it with something else. Rinse and repeat every so often.

I'm 18 years old so I'm actually younger than Slackware.
