Since its first beta release in April of 1993, the Slackware Linux Project has aimed at producing the most "UNIX-like" Linux distribution.

I hadn't even realized how long this group has been dormant.

Let's mix it up a little... shall we?

Until then...

It's that time again. The 13th annual Linux Symposium to be hosted by the University of Ottowa is scheduled for June 13th - 15th, 2011.

The goal of the Linux Symposium is to bring together Linux developers, enthusiasts, and systems administrators to improving communication, strengthen the personal connections within the Linux Community and to promote the open and free dissemination of new ideas. We see our community as the most diverse group ever to collaborate on a single project and we are very proud to have played our part for the last 13 years.

Of particular noteworthiness is the emergence of what this year is being touted as, "The new 'M' in LAMP": MariaDB. a page covering the presentation is here and this might be the last database product we see from Monty unless he decides to have more children to name them after ;)

See you there!
