Permit me to cite from this article:
Quote:
While the likes of SuSE took Slackware very seriously, picking up the distribution in 1994, making it the basis of its eponymous distribution, The Register prefers to raise a toast to the original and wish Volkerding and his team all the best for the next 25 years. Then we'll have a crack at getting 14.2 installed.

A beer, a command line, and a 25-year-old Linux distribution famed for its "simplicity". What could go wrong?

Added to other thread too - nice article, so good to see Slack getting the recognition and celebration it deserves.

Yes. It is nice to read respectful articles about our operating system!
