Slackware, Slax Slackware Linux 11 was released at the beginning of this month, which marks 13 years of continued development. Slackware Linux, while not the first Linux distribution, is the oldest surviving one, and is starting to show signs of aging. The first version of Slackware Linux was released on July 16, 1993, by Patrick Volkerding. More here.

You laid it out beautifully.

One of the things I did when I was still on Slackware was to help fix the floppy-tape driver (I was using those devices from Mountain Hardware, CMS, and Seagate in those days.) I also helped fix one of the backup/restore utilities that was around in those days.

Honestly, I feel kind of lazy with even Debian, let alone Suse or Ubuntu..... ;)
