Hi rgb,

Hahaha! I know Bob's last name. But someone else will have
to divulge it. Patrick's last name was trivial. Hahahaha.

BTW, Patrick is a really cool figure in Linux history. My
source for who Bob is, is Patrick himself. (smiles ;) Patrick
and I once had a long and rambling discussion about the early
days of Slackware, and that is when Patrick discussed Bob to
me... I won't divulge any of the content of that private
discussion. (smiles ;) So my source is definitive.

We still don't know the original home base city and state
for Slackware: OK: It is Fargo, North Dakota.

Patrick told me this himself once. But it is verified here:
