Yeah. Good. It's about time Slackware got some credit and recognition, instead of all the usual dismissive/negative reviews.

Wow!

Nice find rmjohnso.

I hope that Pat be able to hold Slackware's helm at least for the twenty years to come - then B. C. V. will be able to take over.

Of course I am assuming that BDFL is a hereditary.

Praise "Bob"!
There's a short 20th birthday video, too. But it's no good 'cause it doesn't mention Slack. :tisk:

Congratulations, Mr. Volkerding! :D

And in the beginning was Slackware!

Too right - although to be honest I think Slackware does get quite a lot of credit and recognition - especially with proper "Linux-heads".
To anyone interested in the history of the linux distros this timeline gives a good idea - it's what made me first decide on Slackware as my introduction to Linux quite a long time ago - thankfully the right choice for once.

I could not find myself on the timeline!
Does it mean that I'm not famous? :rolleyes:

Thanks for that link, rmjohnso :) Very cool to see our distro at the beginning of it all!
