This post also marks my 500th post on this blog. It's been two years since my first post on this blog. It describes why i choose Slackware for my laptop and migrate the desktop as well. Since then, this blog is growing and receive more and more readers. Right now, it has been known by many Slackware users around the world even though i never published it explicitly. Thanks to all of you guys this blog still exists. I really enjoyed updating this blog.

I also wanted to say thank you to Patrick J. Volkerding who has devoted his time to maintain Slackware, the best Linux distribution i ever tried and probably will be the best ever love struck
