Memory lane...

Slackware was my first distro: downloaded over a 2400 baud modem in 1991 (my family may never forgive me for hogging the phone line for 2 days :-)

Tip of the hat to Patrick Volkerding and crew.

That's pretty amazing, since it was first released in 1993.

Seriously? I traveled a lot on business in 1991, and I thought that I had an HP laptop loaded up with Slackware. That said, I just googled Slackware and version 1.0 was officially released in 1993, as you said.

I guess that I have not been using Linux for as long as I thought. Thanks for the correction.
