Happy Birthday????


Some are saying happy birthday to Slackware.
http://www.slackware.com/info/ under "The Slackware Philosophy", it states:
"Since its first beta release in April of 1993, the Slackware Linux Project has aimed at producing the most "UNIX-like" Linux distribution out there."

What am I missing?

Hi,

Quote:
History;
SLS was not well-maintained, so Patrick Volkerding released a distribution based on SLS, which he called Slackware; released July 16, 1993 [4]. This is the oldest distribution still in active development.
Maybe that will help?

Happy Birthday, Mr. Volkerding!
Best Wishes for Many Happy Returns!
Cheers!

(Maybe that should be Happy Anniversary?)

Thanks onebuck!
I had to read that a couple of times to catch the difference.

Happy Birthday to Slackware.
Thank-you Pat and also to all you devs that make this distro so great!
