Slackware Linux 1.0 was first released 19 years ago in form of 24
floppy disks by Patrick Volkerding while he was stil a student in
Minnesota State University Moorhead.
It's now considered as one of the oldest Linux distribution currently
being maintained. Patrick is the BDFL for Slackware Linux throughout
the entire project, even though more and more people joined the
Slackware Team and contribute to this project.
