What I'm really hoping for is a nice black polo with the current Slackware logo. I kept planning on getting it from the Slackware store, but always put it off (which I'm glad I did if he wasn't benefiting from it). Hopefully we can get some items with the old logo that we can purchase and directly support Pat.

That would be awesome! I know for a fact that I wouldn't be the only one raiding the store. Too late for Christmas I would think?

Patrick said a few years ago that he didn't mind people buying the odd coffee mug off Zazzle.

EDIT: also, browsing the "Install Gentoo" wiki, I came across this just now.

"Slackware is dead" is listed as a common misconception:

Quote:
No matter how long it takes for "stable" numbered releases, Slackware-current has always been kept up to date and offers a mostly stable rolling release for people who want regular kernel updates. It is the oldest surviving Linux distribution, first released on 07/17/1993, making it 5 months older than Debian, and unlike Debian, it is not a socialist cluster**** ruled by committees, governed by social contracts, that uses an absolutely ghastly package manager and is dependent on systemd.

It's actually not associated with the official Gentoo website and wiki, but it is funny. I believe it was created by some 4chan folks.

Yup, for sure. One thing I really like about the Gentoo and Slackware communities, is their general respect for each other.

Well, OK, OP admits he really meant there's only been a new release about once every 2 1/2 years. In my book, that's spelled S-T-A-B-L-E, not D-E-A-D. Heck, it's been about 8 years since i've upgraded my OS or my hardware. When i'm finally ready to do so again, am thinking Slackware should definitely be on my short list of choices.

What about other stores, such as Etsy?

Now I am happy my subscription was canceled, due to CC theft/reissuing. Last few years for me has been screwy with coworkers and family medical issues. I am just now beginning to be able to find time for computing/playing again, and found out about the store and your bad fortune.

Are you allowed to have a store currently, or is it tied up in litigation?
