Slackware is Rock Solid..... Thanks to all contributors!!!!!!!!


I have been playing with slackware about 2 years on and off. Lately I have been using it daily. This masterpiece is awesome. I don't have any problems whatsoever atm. I still have some windows computers laying around for business purposes. But, for the most part I am happy with the concrete foundation of this linux distro. My wife and daughter like it as well. My mother is running a copy. Since I don't have any issues, my goal is to make this a permanent solution. Thanks again to all.

I started using Slackware in spring of 2015, so roughly 2 years now as well. By mid-summer (2015) I became a contributor of SBo. I learn stuff every day running Slackware. Slackware is robust, reliable, and simple to use. Sometimes it's hard to find documentation entailing all the different uses of Slackware. The Slackware documentation project is often my go to before hitting google. The best part about Slackware is it forces you to learn Linux, not just how to use a specific distribution.

Thanks to all the other Slackware and SBo contributors. I know I am nowhere near as advanced as some of you and any help I get is much appreciated.

I wish I could contribute more than I already am. If anyone needs a peon for their project, let me know. I learn fast and have a lot of free time.

Thanks all!

Many thanks to Pat and the entire Slackware Team. I started using Slackware in 2004, version 10.0.
I'll always be a Slacker.

Me too.

I stumbled over Slackware 12 years ago last month. It taught me to understand Linux. Since then I've had at least one Slackware box at all times, even as I've also explored other distros.

I thanked Pat and Slackware team.

I used Slackware (8.1 if not mistaken) since 2002, three years after someone introduced me Linux. Those were days that I stopped by internet cafe (shared dial up/VSAT) to download Perl modules and security updates (with Windows!) as no broadband was available in our town. To cater local needs we prepared Slackware installation book and basic services in Bahasa Indonesia.

From 2004, Slackware is our backbone OS for most of our production servers (besides Gentoo and Ubuntu).

Things getting better with Slackware these days. Keep up the good work!

It's quite exciting actually, because there's a whole new generation of people like yourself coming through, and it would be such a waste to treat you as a peon. The valuable thing you have to offer is a fresh pair of eyes. What's annoying? What is missing, that the long-time users ceased to care about years ago? And then just start it small, show other people the potential, and accept their feedback before it gets too big.

Maybe a certain init system did everything right except the last bit.

Nice to see all the enthusiasm for Slack. I started with Slack version 9? many years ago and worked my way through Slack 11 before life took over and I got seriously busy. Now that things have quieted down, I'm back!!! I just installed 14.2, and so much of what I forgot comes back so easily. I'll be lurking again. For as much as I remember, there is more I've forgotten, or the changes that have been made since 2011.
