Interview with Patrick Volkerding, tomorrow on LQ

On thursday 7 june 2012, you will finally be able to read a full-scale interview with Patrick Volkerding, founder and head honcho of Slackware. The announcement was made earlier today by Jeremy, who runs LinuxQuestions.org, in this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/slackware-14/interview-with-patrick-volkerding-940870/

The questions which will be featured have for the most part been asked in that forum thread. I believe that Pat answered all of the ones that have been sent to him by Jeremy. His answers are so detailed, that the article in the Interviews section may get split into two separate halves.

Have fun – tomorrow.

Eric

 

Update:

The interview has been posted on LQ.org.

Newest Linux User & developer magazine had also some story about Slackware. Probably worth of checking.
