I was surprised when I mentioned I was thinking of leaving Slackware and found that a very large number of people use Slackware and prefer it. Far more than I thought was possible. I am not alone.
What I am is ignorant of a lot of the modern support available for Slackware, services that might solve all my problems with it. I have had a lot of offers of help to get me up to speed with the new Slackware features.
