    So sorry to hear this. Slackware was the first distro I used, and I ran it for seven years, starting with 7.x in late 2000. I remember how excited I used to be about getting a box of official Slackware CDs (later DVDs) in the mail! I’m still sentimental about it. Pat is definitely the founding father of the minimalist school of Linux, I’d say.
