7 More Heroes of Linux


Patrick Volkerding, Slackware

If you're thinking "Hey, Patrick Volkerding is not unknown!" you're right. I had to include Patrick because Slackware doesn't get breathless buzz like the glamorous Linuxes; it just keeps chugging along being rock-solid and excellent, without drama. Slackware is one of the oldest Linux distributions, and has the rare distinction of having the same leader and maintainer throughout its existence, founder Patrick Volkerding.

Thought you slackers might appreciate this  :breakfast:

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984
