Here's to 20 years of Slackware, and here's to 20 more years God willing.

Congratulations Pat. The creation of the original slackware was a hell of an achievement, but has been dwarfed in comparison to your keeping it going and nurturing it to its terrific -current state.

Much thanks for giving us an operating system that is a source of joy rather than annoyance.

Michael

Finally, slackware is young, almost three times younger than me,

a French song said, "on n'a pas tous les jours vingt ans"

Joyeux anniversaire ..............

Happy birthday, Slackware! Only one more year before I can legally run 'installpkg beer.txz' on you

I'm tempted to grab a copy of a very early release (1.01 is on mirrors.slackware.com; I wonder if any older versions are lingering on some old FTP server somewhere) and see if I can get it installed. I already have SLS running on my oldest machine (Compaq Presario 1210) and it would be fun to play with them side-by-side and see the similarities and differences.

Praise Bob!
And thank you, Pat for the work put into this and the attention to the community.
My machine has been dual-boot for a long time: A Slackware partition for things to work and another partition for trying out all the other new stuff. Slackware runs solidly and it stays where it is.
This occasion calls for a donation, by the way.

Have used Slackware on and off since the late 90's until I decided to completely dump Windows. Here's the book that got me started:
