philosophy


I'm curious if there is a link to something that describes the slackare project's philosophy in detail.

Does it have a governing body? How are decisions made? Etc.

Thanks

The Slackware Philosophy

Since its first release in April of 1993, the Slackware Linux Project has aimed at producing the most "UNIX-like" Linux distribution out there. Slackware complies with the published Linux standards, such as the Linux File System Standard. We have always considered simplicity and stability paramount, and as a result Slackware has become one of the most popular, stable, and friendly distributions available.
