distros, Linux, Slackware, Slackware 13.0, Vista
Slackware 13.0 was released last week. Apparently there are solid reasons that it’s the oldest Linux distro still in development.
There’s a great interview with Eric Hameleers in Linux Magazine explaining why you should try Slackware. Here’s a quote:
“This continuous influx of ‘converts’ is one of the reasons that Slackware has not disappeared into oblivion. Slackware assumes you are smart! This appeals to people.”
Aha! Now I understand the pipe. (Remember “pipe-smoking intellectuals,” anyone?) That assumption might be refreshing. I know for a fact that Vista thinks I’m an idiot — and quite likely a dangerous one, at that.
