[News] Review of Slackware 12.2

Hash: SHA1

Revised Slackware keeps it simple

,----[ Quote ]
| For existing users, this point release brings lots of great updates to your 
| favorite apps and the kernel. If you haven't upgraded yet, the slackpkg tool 
| can assist you with that and help keep you updated.  
| For new users, Slackware isn't as difficult as you might have heard, and 
| there's no better time than now to try it. It offers similar hardware support 
| and amenities as many other distributions. You may have to learn to do a few 
| things from the command line from time to time, but you're liable to discover 
| things can be much simpler that way.    
| Slackware isn't for everyone. But in a landscape where distro and application 
| developers are increasingly catering to new Windows converts, it's nice to 
| have one who's sticking to his original goals. Slackware is still keeping it 
| simple for Linux users who like using Linux.   



Slackware Approaches Stable 12.2 Release

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux Weekly News directs readers to a Slackware Linux list post detailing
| the package versions and included components for the upcoming Slackware 12.2
| release. The major components (such as X, and the kernel) are now frozen, and
| most of the remaining changes are smaller adjustments and documentation
| updates.



Slackware: Secure all the way back to 8.1

| Slackware provides security updates all the way back to version 8.1 along
| with 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0 and 12.0, so if there is a reason
| you're using an older version of Slack, it is still being supported by the
| distro's creator, Patrick Volkerding and his team.  


Slackware: There's something totally sane about it

| Did I mention that configuring CUPS printing for my difficult-to-dial-in
| networked printer was easier in Slackware than in anything else I've tried?
| I'm mentioning it now.

| I HIGHLY recommend Slackware 12 to anyone that has an open mind and isn’t
| afraid to maybe get their hands a tad dirty. Slackware won’t baby you like
| ubuntu, but you will learn a lot more about Linux with Slackware.  

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
