A Linux distribution that was derived from the Softlanding Linux System (SLS) by Patrick Volkerding in 1993. As a part-time project, the name was intended to convey a lack of serious commitment, although Slackware became popular with advanced Linux users who wanted to learn more about the system. More than a dozen Linux distributions evolved from Slackware, including Slackintosh, a version for PowerPC-based Macs (prior to Intel-based Macs). For more information, visit See wares.
