Your fortune awaits on Slackware Linux
Enjoying a lazy Sunday morning, I decided to boot up my Slackware-current laptop to install yet another batch of kernel updates. To repay my kindness, Slackware gave me what I can only describe as a malicious jumpscare that nearly resulted in a heart attack.
Sure, as a long time slacker I did realize what just went down, but the instant damage was still delivered in full. Thanks a lot, Mr. Volkerding ;-)

I’m pretty sure you won’t ever see something like this on your precious enterprise-ready GNU/Linux distribution. Praise Bob and slack on friends.
