Even though the release of Slackware version 14.2 was recently announced, I encourage the yearly anniversary donation/purchase.

I have a nephew born on Christmas day. When he was young we made a special effort each year to recognize his birthday and not let it get forgotten by Christmas celebrations.

A few more bills to pay and then I'll order a DVD subscription. Just hoping the DVD turns out better-looking than the Heanet ISOs I've been downloading!

;-)

Interesting fact: July 16th is also the anniversary of the first atomic bomb test.

Me, too.

Slackware taught me to understand Linux. And then there's the whole rock-solid thing . . . .

Thanks for the anniversary reminder. I just sent my $24 birthday gift to help support the continuation of Slackware.
