At least he is providing updates. Frequently being on reddit, I am used to the OP never coming through. This is a nice change of pace

It'll be 15 years since I started this thread in not too long. I might come back for it's birthday.

Well, I'd like to know how it worked out for you - do you think you would have finished compiling Gentoo by then?

I'm coming back as well. I started with Slackware 3.0 back in late summer 1996 after another amateur radio operator introduced me to the idea of Free Software and being able to legally share a complete operating system. I was also intrigued to learn a Unix like system after years of MS-DOS and MS Windows 3.11. The 3.0 didn't last but a couple of weeks before I found the four CD set of Slackware '96 in a local book/music store. I started working with that and was on my way (who remembers fvwm95?).

By late summer of 1999 I gave Debian a try and stuck with it throughout until the SystemD decision. I jumped to Devuan about a year ago and am still running it on this desktop and as my MythTV DVR box (it will likely remain so for some time as it was tedious trying to build Myth on Slackware even with SBo as it has so many dependencies). A bit over a month ago I gave Salix a try on my T410 and I am well pleased with it. To help out, I have Slackware/Slackware64 14.2 installed on separate virtual machines and have been contributing the Slackbuilds.org to give a little back to the Slackware community. At some point I will probably convert this desktop over to Slackware64 as it seems as though progress on Devuan has waned.

Starting out on Slackware many years ago has served me very well. It's good to be back.

I've had to take a break from Slackware recently but my reason is hardware issues, namely my second hard disk failed and I'm working to replace it.

However, I don't feel as if its the end of the world. Windows 10 Pro works decently enough for what I need. Hopefully soon I can get another drive to work on Slackware again.

Seems I am going to be the party pooper: I dislike this thread. It is pointless and trying too hard to be funny.
