LinuxQuestions has an interview with Patrick Volkerding, the creator of Slackware.
Slackware is my favorite Linux distribution. My first encounter with Linux was through Slackware around 1994. I still remember the days that I went to school's computer lab with a stack of floppy disks to download the latest release, it was frustrated with the lousy floppy disks, I had to write two disks for each disk image just in case one of them failed.
Since then I have used Suse, Redhat, Debian, etc occasionally, every time I have to come back to Slackware for its simplicity and elegant style of system management scripts. From Slackware I have learned lots and have supported it through my subscription to the DVD.
I wish every Slackware supporters would do a subscription to show the appreciation for Patrick's great work if finance is not a problem.
