    Just so you know:

    An uninformed comment on a Linux community blog has led to questions over the stability and finances of the Slackware GNU/Linux project, but its founder assures iTWire that the project is alive and kicking.

    Patrick J. Volkerding said jocularly, in response to queries, "A server's down, and I should be doing something about that, but first I'm going to upload some X11 updates."

    The site was down in mid-April and its unavailability led to discussion on both the LinuxQuestions.org and DistroWatch sites about the stability of the project itself.


    Central to the unnecessary speculation was a comment by Linux consultant Caitlyn Martin, about the wisdom of basing a project called Linux Yarok on Slackware, when the latter itself appeared to be unstable.
