http://www.slackware.org/ would be Patrick Volkerding's home (he's the main guy on Slackware)
while http://www.slackware.com/ would be Slackware's home

Err: http://connie.slackware.com/~volkerdi/

I don't think slackware.org has anything to do with Slackware (in an official sense); it certainly doesn't look like it does.

http://www.slackware.org/ seems just so wrong. Full of Windows icons and power-button icons? What the heck is that? It is definitely something wrong with that site...

LOL, I didn't know that I am running Slackware 2.6.37.6 on my machines:
Quote:
Slackware remains in development, with the current version, as of April 2011, being 2.6.37.6.
Definitely not written by someone close to Slackware.
I also like some of the other sentences, just because they make no sense at all:
Quote:
It is simple because it doesn’t take up the entire hard drive.
I have dedicated 2.5 hard disks in my main machine and a whole SSD in my laptop to Slackware, so obviously I am doing something wrong.
Quote:
The fact that the software is easier to use makes it one of the best open source tools on the market.
I don't see how for example Firefox, Thunderbird or GIMP are easier to use than on other distros.
Quote:
Take away all of the updates
I seriously have to look if I really have Slackware on my machines, since I usually get updates.

I am not kidding when I say that the site is kinda creepy. It is like a bad horror movie but still creepy.

Also :-

http://www.codamusic.com/
http://www.satellite911.com/
http://www.slackware.org/
http://www.aerocompositedesign.com/

All created with wordpress 3.0.1

None of the sites have any real information as to who created them.

Their website? http://www.dynatagroup.com/ seems to be parked.

May be these sites are created by robots, with minimal human oversight. It could be a bot that crawls the Web, figures out what's popular, registers domains, rolls a random wordpress profile, and generates a few paragraphs of nonsensical writeup. I am surprised there are no ads.

Edit: May be humans are not involved at all and these are the first ripples of Internet's consciousness.

You mean posting about Slackware is a sign of consciousness?

Hi,

Slackers may want to look at this thread to show some light on the subject; Looks Like Someone Forgot To Pay The Bill.

Look at what PV states within; http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...1/#post4397378

Yep, it's a silly game. What are you supposed to do to stop these muppets? Register your domain in every country's .org.xx and .co.xx along with the global .org, .com, and not forgetting all these new-fangled gTLDs that they're introducing. Pat has the right idea: just don't play the game.
