Random thoughts, tips & tricks about Slackware-Linux, Lego and Star Wars

‘The Man’

Those who use Slackware will know who Patrick Volkerding is. For those who don’t: he is the creator and maintainer of the Slackware Linux distribution. Also known as ‘The Man’.
Browsing for articles about the history of Slackware (I might write something about it in the future), I found an interview with Pat from 1994 from Linux Journal.
At that time, I was still completely into DOS and Windows (I ‘only’ discovered Slackware and Linux in 1996). It is fun to read… It even talks about a possible merger between Slackware and Debian (that never happened, as we now know). And there is a rare picture of ‘The Man’…
You can find the interview here.
