glomph writes "Patrick Volkerding defies the odds, and all the ill-informed critics.... the lightweight distro of choice just keeps on kicking! From the release: he first Slackware release more than a year in the making, this edition of Slackware combines Slackware's legendary simplicity, stability, and security with some of the latest advances in Linux technology. Sure it's boring, yeah it's predictable, but it Just Plain Works. (and the upgrading is trivially easy, with slackpkg and other pkgtools.) Despite what all the FUDster want you to think, Slackware has had a great package-management strategy for years! http://www.slackware.com/ (use Bittorrent, please!)"
