Mad Penguin Announces Slackware Handbook Project
SilentBob4 writes "Mad Penguin announced today that they have launched the Slackware Handbook Project, promised to be the most complete documentation every created for the oldest Linux distribution in active development. The handbook will be a very close cousin to the FreeBSD Handbook, which is a document noted for its thorough approach to documenting the operating system. According to sources at Mad Penguin, there is a void in the current offerings of technical documents available for the popular open source operating system. "There is nothing like the FreeBSD Handbook for Linux and our design may even take it farther then that," says Narayan Newton, Mad Penguin System Administrator, who was responsible for the original handbook concept."
