The SLS legacy
I wonder how much of original SLS philosophy has been (in a more or less modified form) kept with the Slackware of today.
Patrick Volkerding still partially uses the nomenclature for software series as SLS did: A for base, T for Tex/teTeX, X for X Window System.
In SLS as well as in SW there's the "install.end" file.
It would be interesting to get to know if there are other parts of the system or design philisophy that have been organically grown out of SLS.
