http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slackware

Quote:
The name "Slackware" stems from the fact that the distribution started as a private side project with no intended commitment. To prevent it from being taken too seriously at first, Volkerding gave it a humorous name, which stuck even after Slackware became a serious project.[4]

The "slack" in Slackware is a reference to the term "slack" as used by the Church of the SubGenius.

It's not to be taken seriously, obviously:

I'm not a freemason, never would be, but wouldn't let a joke put me off using Slackware.
Praise BOB!

Did you know that 'apron aid' is an anagram of 'paranoid'?

And why won't you be using Slackware? Because it's creator satirizes your beliefs? I don't see your point...

Maybe a Pat V signed copy of Slackware 5 or Slackware 6 would help calm the OP's nerves?

Seems like the OP is trying to state:
  • Slackware has the philosophy of Freemasons, thus a Freemason product (At least, according to spurious and dubious 'reporting' on the Web)
  • Slackware promotes smoking tobacco(Due to our illustrious logo, Bob, smoking a pipe)
  • As stated, "...sorry for my bad language..."
Well, to the first... Don't believe everything you read. I can make a Wiki Page saying that the Sun is made of orange Juice from California. Doesn't make it true.

For the second statement...I'm not totally convinced it's tobacco...And really couldn't care less WHAT he's smoking, or even that he does.

Finally, for most of the world, English is NOT their primary, or even secondary, language. So some interpretation is needed. Just blink, breathe, and try to think.
