Fear not my fellow Slackers, I say not bad things of that which is Slackware, but to say I have become one of the few, the enlightened, and the graduates of Slackware and Patrick's infinite wisdom of Linux. :study:

An uninformed comment on a Linux community blog has led to questions over the stability and finances of the Slackware GNU/Linux project, but its founder assures iTWire that the project is alive and kicking.
