Slackware 15 finally tagged to release...

(1/2) > >>

PKTKS:
After a long period of chaos and mess produced by
the POTTERIX goonies including everything into an insane daemon...
from resolvers to home user baby sitter to file system watchers...  ::)

A true SAFE *NIX like  stable and reliable distro comes ahead..

Hopefully the good days of reliable and controllable system are back.

Looking forward to it although already checked the RC just fine.

My first Linux was a Slackware. Not sure what release, it came on CD so (according to Wikipedia) it should be 3.0, but I remember that the kernel version was 0.99pl11 so (same source) it must be 1.0. Maybe I downloaded 1.0 and, later, bought the CDs.

Mine as well. Bought a 4-CD and a 6-CD set from Walnut Creek - imported to Brasil back in 1994 or 1995. Good times.

Me too.. circa 93

Patrick  Volker.  made a good money with those CDs...
back in the day a modem would need weeks to download a full CD...

I still have them.. from 93 and some others..
box with printed manuals...


The good days are not behind us..
Just checked the new RC release and it is still
the best thing put together around...

Safe sane smart and with all the best practices  :popcorn:

Some ten years ago when I was doing Gigabit Ethernet development and tests, Slackware saved me. The only test machine I had available was a Pentium III 500MHz severely underpowered for the task if running Windows XP. I then nuked everything and installed a barebones Slackware without a GUI and then got around 700~750Mbps with it. Good times.
