I started out on Mandrake and Redhat systems about seven years ago,
maybe eight, and tried Slackware and Debian about five years ago.
Slackware's stability and flexibilty was just as stunning as the switch
from Windows 2000 to Mandrake. It was quite like seeing some new,
beautiful animal, or the first time actually seeing a tiger feed.

I did this 'cause Linux gives me a woody.  It doesn't generate revenue.
