Earlier this month we celebrated Slackware Linux turning 25 years old. Unfortunately this week we have less pleasant news from the world's oldest surviving Linux distribution. In an on-going discussion thread on Linux Questions Slackware's founder, Patrick Volkerding, described the financial problems he and the distribution are facing. One of the key issues appears to be that the Slackware Store, which was run by a third-party, has not been forwarding Slackware's share of the profits to the developers. Volkerding has announced plans to set up PayPal and Patreon accounts for Slackware fans who would like to help keep the project afloat.
