Thank you for Slackware64


I just installed a new AMD 64 X2 desktop with slackware64-current. It's blazing fast. I just want to thank Eric H. (who I believe is primarily responsible for the port) and everyone else involved for this most excellent product.

I have a subscription to Slackware, putting my money where my mouth is, but I don't think that any of this goes to Eric, Robby W., and all the other contributors without whom Slackware would not be what it is (no disrespect to Pat). So all I can do is say thank you, thank you, thank you.

Awesome! This is how we keep Slackware strong. I will be making a financial contribution to Slackware as well, that is, I'll either buy the new DVD when 13.0 is released or I'll make a donation.
Many thanks to Eric, Robby, the Slackware team, and to the main man, Mr. Volkerding.

Make a donation to Slackware

Yes, Eric is the one who ported Slackware to the x86_64 arch. Others have helped
after the fact, but he started it and did the foundational work.

I've found that we can contribute to Eric through his wiki:

Welcome to Eric Hameleers (Alien BOB)'s Wiki pages.

Look at the top and find the Donate button which links to PayPal.




I'll put a plug in for Pat, too -- he had hardware failure on the Slackware server
over the 4th of July weekend. Plus, Slackware is his only source of income, and
the 13.0 release has been delayed, so he can use the help for sure.

Done. Thanks for the tip. Here's a challenge to everyone who uses slackware64, especially for production use: Give a little!

Agreed! All you long-time slackers out there, or anyone using Slack for production, consider a subscription. And even if you can't afford a subscription, Give a little!
