Thank you to everything involved with Slackware for all of the hard work.

Years ago, I finally stopped distro-hopping and found my home. Slackware just works.

Stay strong.

Congrats! Slackware remains the oldest surviving Linux distribution. Some people might call it old-fashioned, but I call it timeless. (Okay, I'll stop with the lame cliches, but it's true.)

Happy Birthday Slackware - After over 15 years of Linux being my sole OS I really should have tried it out earlier.

I liken Slack to a trying to tame a wild brumby - it pulls you around kicking and screaming at first, but once you understand and respect it, nothing else comes close.

A big shout out of thanks to everyone who contributes so much to the project.

Happy B'Day Slackware !

Don't know what I would do without my Slackware WorkStation !

Software Development on any other OS would surely suck

Thank you to Pat and 'the crew' !

One Q ... I am a longtime Slackware and I am billed with each new Release.

Is there another Subscription Plan where I can be auto-billed annually, new Slackware release or not ?

I would dive right into a Plan like that because there is a lot going on behind the scenes at all times !

Thanks again, All'Y'All !

Just make a birthday donation every July. Readers of this Slackware forum will be reminded every July.

Thank you for the Info Tracy Tiger !

I will have to try to remember to try again later.

When I pressed [Continue] on the Final Screen:

Code:
We are sorry, but the Interchange server is unavailable due to a
system error.

montagdude, Slackware isn't timeless:

$ date

will give you the local date and time, if you've set the timezone correctly. If not, you need to run "tzselect" as root.

That command has all kinds of uses.

Just now tried the Birthday Donation again after seeing Mr. Johnson's Post.

All is well, Slackware's B'Day Present has been successfully sent

Dang it, how did that cancerous "date" program make its way into Slackware?

There was also a post on reddit that received a large number of upvotes and a lot of nice comments (considering it's mostly a pretty young crowd).

How about next year to release a special edition, something like: Slackware 1.0 - Director's cut. Now on DVD.

I know, I know, 99% of DVD would be blank, but would be a nice present/must buy for a rounded 25. And worked well for bigger houses! Which ones? Have a hint on my username...

PS. If you manage to make it to even still work, at least partially, would be really, but really fun. I for one I would buy it. A pack. To give as gift to my friends.

PS2. The Slackware 1.0 size was about 47MB, if I remember right, go figure WHY I said that 99% of DVD would be blank...
