glomph (2644) writes "Patrick Volkerding defies the odds, and all the ill-informed critics.... the lightweight distro of choice just keeps on kicking!

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!)"
