Over the last few days there has been some unnecessary drama around Slackware. Some Slackware users (including myself) might have slightly overreacted to Eric’s comment. This, together with some poor journalling practices of a certain individual have opened a debate, not necessarily about Slackware’s future – because it doesn’t seem endangered in any way, but about Slackware website. Despite its negative aspects, the situation has shown how dedicated to Slackware its users are with their donations. I’m sure Pat will put these extra few dollars to a good use. I have learned so much using Slackware that it’d be inappropriate not to donate money.
Thank you Pat and the rest of the Slackware crew.
