Listened to the first episode last night, great work guys - or should I say, great conversation and thanks for posting it?
The bit about Slackware teaching you about computers reminds me of my early days with Linux, when the same thing was said about Linux as a whole - and it was certainly true of one "newbie-friendly" distro that couldn't decide which configuration front-end to use from one week to the next.

We'll do a few more podcasts so that any guest will know what they're getting into; but if we can do a 3-way Skype call (I think it supports that in the free version) we can do it (guest willing!).

Finally got a chance to listen to episode one.

Nice job.

I completely agree with your comments about Slackware's being a darn fine teacher. I started with Slackware by accident (whatever I tried to install first didn't and Slackware did) and have always been glad I did, because Slackware taught me to understand Linux.

I used Redhat for +2 years running domain servers for a VISP before I was introduced to Slackware. In those +2 years using Redhat I learned how to use "the system" [pointy-clicky style] but absolutely nothing about Linux. It might as well have been Windows and/or just another GUI to fathom for me.

Slackware was my REAL baptism of fire into Linux, and I became positively scorched by it. Slackware 'setup', CLI, kernels, shells, packages, configs, PIDs, and BASH! [Oh how I --LOVE-- bash!!!] All of these elements were new to me with Slackware. If I had stuck with what I know then I certainly would not have been as receptive, or forced by the system, to learn new things.

There is no better tool than Slackware on which to learn Linux. By design it's the most unabridged, in-depth, and rewarding Linux OS in existence, and on that basis Slackware remains peerless.

This needs to be on a very large t-shirt, or tagline etc... Well said!

PS: just added it to my signature.

I've sown the seeds within the Slackware team, so we'll see if anyone else wants to join in the conversation! :-)

Episode 5 is up, and we're talking about packages.

http://www.slackware.com/~mozes/docs...esentation.pdf

[EDIT] I am so grateful to MoZes for making this Slackware package .PDF available. It is, and has been, THE seminal document in pkg creation for me. Hint: Slackdocs would benefit from this! THANK YOU STU! <3

The Star office version is also there. OpenOffice probably reads these, so it should be reasonably easy to update should anyone wish to do so.

Episode 6 is up, and we're talking about how we use our ARM devices and how they're a useful entry point into using Linux and Slackware.

Episode 7 is up. We cut ourselves some slack and talk about almost nothing whatsoever to do with Slackware!
