Welcome to the Linux Foundation Forum!

Welcome to Slackware

No. I'm not the Slackware sub-forum moderator or even its resident guru. However, I was surfing by and noticed how lonely this area looked. It needed a "first posting", so here it is.

A hearty welcome to all my slacker mates wherever you may be. I'm looking forward to interesting interaction here at the Linux.com forums, specifically in this area of the forum.

I'm not guru by any stretch of the imagination. I can hold my own, though. And whatever I don't know, is easily found in the large and (usually) very helpful Linux community.

Step right up. Don't be shy. Tell us all about your Slackware experiences. I'm looking forward to reading about them.

    I don't really know much about that OS, Arben. Sorry. Maybe others at Linux.com would know something about it, though.

    I do know a couple things... It was originally based on WHAX (White Hat/SLAX), but v.4 went to Debian as a basis for the OS. If you're planning on using v.4 of BackTrack, that's actually Debian under the hood, my friend.

    Read some more about it --> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BackTrack

    I joined the forum about 4 days ago, then left on a camping trip. I will be lurking about for awhile to get the lay of the land.

    Hiya Michael!

    I know you! :)

    Well, it's been a while...

    I thought I'd pop in here and bump the very first thread ever posted in this area of the forum; appropriate that it be about the oldest living distribution of GNU/Linux.

    Slackware STILL ROCKS! :)
