Slackware Linux


Author: Benjamin D. Thomas

Since its first release in 1992, Slackware has been built
with ease of use and stability as top priorities. Including the latest popular software while retaining a sense of tradition, providing simplicity and
ease of use alongside flexibility and power — this is what a Linux distribution should be.

The Slackware Linux Project
Slackware Linux was first released in April, 1992 to provide a stable, easy to
use distribution of the Linux operating system. Years of evolution have not
changed the fundamental philosophy of the Slackware Linux Project — that
simplicity is important and stability is key.

Compliance with the published Linux standards (such as the Linux File System
Standard), a determination to produce the most UNIX®-like distribution possible,
and a focus on simplicity and ease of use have made Slackware one of
the most popular, stable, and friendly distributions available.
