Special Information

Slackware is a free and open source Linux-based operating system.

It was one of the earliest operating systems to be built on top of the Linux kernel and is the oldest currently being maintained.

Slackware was created by Patrick Volkerding of Slackware Linux, Inc. in 1993. The current stable version is 13.37, released on April 27, 2011.
