My thoughts on Slackware, life and everything

My Linux Rig

An interview for “My Linux Rig” by Steven Ovadia. One of the site’s features is “The Linux Setup”interviews with people about their Linux setups.

Lots of interesting people have been interviewed there in the past, I feel grey and bland in comparison. I returned an email interview early August and it was posted today. I manage to keep quiet about systemd ๐Ÿ˜‰


Have fun! Eric


  1. Niki Kovacs

    Nice interview, Eric. Indeed, during the first few paragraphs, you succeed in *not* mentioning that big white elephant that’s standing in the room. BTW, that’s starting to make a significant percentage of Slackware users on the Linux Setup site. World domination is nigh :oD

  2. Jen

    Way cool! (And cute kitty!)

  3. gauchao

    Very nice, Eric. Thanks for sharing. All the best!

  4. zbreaker

    Great interview Eric. I found myself constantly nodding my head in approval of all the qualities that indeed draw me to this great distro.

  5. Deny Dias

    ‘We assume that you are a smart person!’

    Thank you, sir! We know you are one of these too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Great interview. Congratulations!

  6. Petr

    Nice interview AND desktop (reminds me of mine :-D). Thanks Eric ;).

  7. Michelino

    My congratulations!

  8. Eduardo

    Great interview and a great explanation of why Slackware is the best distro.

  9. Ghost

    The second paragraph of your first answer – you take those words out of my mouth!

    Thanx Eric, I’m forwarding the article to my colleagues who like to make regular jabs against my (a decade long) use of Slackware.
