The latest Distrowatch news reports that the prime developer of Slackware is in serious financial trouble due to little of the USD100,000 revenue from 14.2 reaching him. Though he will try to continue, he needs a better funding model. See:

I read it a few weeks ago.
Incredible that the man from f.ck.g windows is stinking rich and the man from Slackware cannot make ends meet.
It makes me so sad.

Whoever wrote the adage "Build a better mousetrap and the mice will beat a path to your door" didn't mention that you have to bait the trap.

Receiving quality information is essential to making sensible decisions, the predicate upon which The First Amendment was founded and something the Supreme Court overlooked when it decided Citizens United vs. FEC. It's hard to carry on a discussion during periods of Shock and Awe. That and while "Money Talks", corporations are nothing more than devices for investing money while avoiding personal liability and responsibility.

Slackware's changed a great deal in the 15 years I've been using it, or rather its derivatives (I started in 2003 with a distro called Basic Linux which was based on Slack 3.5).

When I first used it you had to edit the xorgconfig file by hand in order to get X Windows to work, and one mistake could mean that it wouldn't. Nowadays it configures X Windows automatically like every other distro.

I'm sorry to read about Pat's financial problems as well. It seems he's been badly ripped off by the people running the store which he's trusted to sell Slackware DVDs and other items on his behalf.

[EDIT; 2,000 Posts! Holy heck.]
