Oh du Cognac ? On ne se refuse rien !

So, London's calling ?

Anyway, funny how just having a "raw" slackware makes me feel like the Breathe reprise "home, home again, I like to be here, when I can..."

Short story, my adventure in linux started with slackware ver 4.0, i was a total newbie at that time didn't knew much about command line, I was intimidated by it, so I went to Redhat for a while, then I jumped in Mandrake's ship, after that I decided to learn linux (and i'm still learning), so I decided to go back to Slackware, and I'm Slackin' since ver 9.1.

So I cheer for Slackware.

Cheers for Slackware !!!

The best linux distro !!

Long live to Slackware !!

Long live to Volkerding !!

Long live to Alien Bob !!

Long live to the Slackware community !!!

No update for a month or more - time to fix that. Some awesome Guinness Foreign Extra on the go this evening [again] - lots of flavour and strength at 7.5%, anyone who's had this stuff knows how good it is. Fortunately I believe it's relatively widely available [over round this way anyway].

Have a great evening all, and thanks to the Slackware community for everything.

I really don't want to be the "party pooper" as i too do dearly love Slackware and it has been my main since 1999, but I find myself a bit confused and moderately concerned at how many people here at LQN seem to express love for Slackware but at the same time seem determined to turn it into just another "also ran". Don't get me wrong I'm open enough that I respect those that attempt builds using non-official inits and such but thankfully that has stayed as experimentation. My main concern is over package management and other forms of automation that seem to be creeping in to a degree that an increasing number of threads take on an "Apples and Oranges" conundrum. For the life of me I truly don't understand why anyone who chooses Slack would want to give up the things that make it particularly unique and stable.

Oh well maybe I'm just becoming some kind of Luddite but it does seem a tad counterproductive en masse.

Hmm not sure this is the thread for this. Maybe start another/mod split?

I think you posted in this topic for the wont of Slack and its userbase staying the same, but things do develop, even for a distro like Slack. I don't want to jump to too many conclusions because I'm not totally sure what you mean, but I think this could warrant discussion in another thead. Sounds interesting.

Anyone here use the Untappd app? Shoot me a friend request @volkerdi and we'll toast each other's libations.

Tying together the last 3 posts, Pat’s actually related to the topic but the other 2 related to each other but not the thread topic - not on Untappd but tempted to join while reading this thread in Austin TX tonight and still enjoying the afterglow of a couple Stash IPAs accompanying a house bockwurst on a whole wheat bun with sweet & sour purple cabbage and I don’t know what kind of mustard, but it was all damn good.

On the other hand, I enjoy my Slackware plain on a huge kernel but without a side of package manager.

Edit: I do season with Slackbuild and Alien spice

Nice choice, however, you have to drink Budweiser for one week as a penance for posting from Debian.

Added! Fortunately that site is good for desktop use since I'm a Luddite and don't use a smartphone. Very useful for events too. @Lysander666

Agh, surely I can just drink tap water instead?

Quite funny, Budweiser was my first favorite beer until I leveled up to like double IPA with 120 IBU. Cannot believe I liked Budweiser back then...

A real penance would be drinking one glass of root beer.

Nah, I would rather drink A&W root beer any day than Bud or, God forbid, Bud Light.
A&W was, once, a small company that started in Lodi, California and the root beer you could buy at their hamburger stands (drive-ins) was excellent. It went on to become a large corporation and is now part of a national chain of fast food restaurants. The A&W in cans is not very good, but the last time I was in the original drive-in in Lodi, the root beer from the tap was still very good, but that was several years ago. During that last visit I noticed they had posted drawings showing how they were about to remodel the place. I hope they left the root beer alone.

Bud Light is an absolute abomination. It's pretty much the other end of the scale to Belgian Trappist beer.

In the UK root beer is related to a drink known as dandelion & burdock, it's an old-fashioned drink with an unusual flavour made since the Middle Ages. It tastes similar to Dr Pepper, in fact I'm pretty sure Dr Pepper is an Americanised reworking.
