An old hacker slaps up Slackware

Posted on Thursday, October 27, 2005 @ 15:06:58 EDT by meshal

Why are Slackware users so passionate about the distro? For some it is all about power and control. What you give up as a Slackware user in creature comforts, in terms of cradle-to-grave package management with dependency resolution, for example, is replaced with near absolute control over what goes on your system. For others it is Slackware's near legendary stability. Still others are seduced by the fact that they are running the world's oldest surviving distribution. But in an informal poll I conducted on the #slackware IRC channel on oftc.net, the most popular reason was none of those things: it was Pat Volkerding, Slackware's founder and maintainer.

One person said simply, "The best part about Slack really is the maintainer, Pat. He keeps everything up-to-date without breaking things." Another added "volkerdi doesn't patch the bejezuz out of everything. the functionality you get for package 'foo' is pretty much exactly what the original author intended."
