What is Slackware Linux?
Slackware is a Linuxdistribution for maximum simplicity and stability. Throughout the era of Linux usage, Slackware has been a popular choice for lasting results and a code base that doesn't have a lot of fragility or inherent interdependence issues.
Slackware is often attributed to Patrick Volkerding, a member of the elite Silicon Valley 'Church of the Subgenious' who created the Linux distribution in 1993. It is very popular in some circles because of its solid framework and its ability to recover from a more array of independent systems, for when it is easy to build. Some developers also consider Slackware to be an example of a 'retro' framework that dates back to the days of more straightforward programming and development, a simple approach that more clearly shows how a particular program works.
