Hey, Pat! Hope I didn't cause you grief and a full
Inbox over my suggestion to "email you..."

It's amazing to see this gregarious community so
passionate over Slackware Linux! I appreciate what
you wrote:
Quote:
Really -- a lot of people say that Slackware is pointlessly hard. Really? So is a spoken language. Perhaps we should all go back to grunting and creating cave drawings.

Any time there is a learning curve, there is a proportional reward. Eventually it becomes more straightforward without the training wheels (though the training wheels are great for market share grab).
As someone studying Chinese, it does remind me a lot
of my few years relentlessly "wrestling Slackware to
the blood," as Tinkster said. There is a certain sense
of accomplishment when you can actually use something
that some people tout as "pointlessly hard".

Now that you and Eric and Tinkster and others have been
helping me with Slack for close to 5 years, the knowledge
gained is well worth climbing the learning curve.

Thanks for everything Pat V. !!

I must say -- out of all of the proposed replacement logos posted here, I like Bruce Hill's logo #1 the best.
I agree, and thank you Mr. Volkerding, it's great to see the old logo back up there

But, which one is Bruce Hill's logo #1 ? He never posted one.

I think it's pwc101's logo #1.

And to the end - thank you a lot Mr. Patrick Volkerding for your great work.

I was asleep, but was told Pat put it up there for a while.

Don't you hate it when you miss your "15 minutes of fame"?

I know I'm a real celebrity now because I became famous in spite of putting in no effort whatsoever

There are a lot of people who thought that from day one. It is always nice to see that change can take place if a group is not happy with something. Most developers would have said "deal with it" etc. Makes me proud to be a slack user.
