I’m in for some serious fun of the best kind. I just learned that Patrick Volkerding released Slackware 12.0 yesterday. The changes from 11.0 are deep and significant; among the ones worth mentioning are the inclusion of a kernel 2.6.x by default, X11 version 7.2, and support for HAL. These updates prompt Patrick to make a statement saying something that is the whole point of my (yet to be concluded) OfB’s Stealth Desktop series:
Just plug and play. Properly set up, Slackware’s desktop should be suitable for any level of Linux experience.
I’m already downloading the ISOs with rsync… and I can’t wait to upgrade. 😀
