20 years challenge: Slackware Linux.
@polychrome, that’s what makes it so good! Anyone who has been in a coma won’t feel lost visiting that site.
@polychrome Real talk I started using slackware with 13.37 back in 2012 and made it my main distro starting in 2014. They let you download as far back as slackware 3.something from 97-99 and when I downloaded & installed it for funsies it was totally familiar, everything was in its place. I love that.
@polychrome Even though they haven't had a release in a while, #Slackware is actually actively maintained and updated. They seem to have a friendly community, is my impression from talking to them in ##slackware@frenode not too long ago. You just don't hear that much about the project other than people reminiscing the early days of Linux distros. Slackware really was my favorite distro, as an otherwise BSD user, and I'd love to give it a go again.
