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

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

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

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

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.

sorry for posting so late, had little time; just wanted to say I read it with pleasure. By the way, nice K-Menu/kickoff starter icon.
