You can download Slackware 13 from one of its official mirror sites. You may also choose to support the continued development of Slackware Linux by buying a set of CDs or a DVD set from the Slackware store.
I have fond memories of installing and using Slackware on my machine. Slackware is known for its KISS philosophy and adherence to a BSD style file layout for its system initialization files.
