Stating whether one runs 13.37 or -current is hardly an opinion, but I guess it's kind of interesting to see people's choices. To make it more interesting you could have enabled the option to see how particular members voted.
Are you saying that your Slackware is from the future?
I am not quite sure of the definition of "current", is it that one updates from the testing/current Slackware repositories, or does it also count that you update software's yourself directly from source? I use for example kernel 3.1.5 right now...

Usually -current refers to updates pulled from the -current repositories. So I assume you've done that and you've added your own kernel.
True but my other one's were.
I wish slackware-current was a bit more current...
Bear in mind that Slackware is such a good distro as a result of a fine balance between stability and cutting-edge. If you destroy this delicate ecosystem, a pony might die
On a serious note, do you have any particular packages in mind?
You can always upgrade them on your own. For example, on my systems any packages that are in any way related to i3 wm (not many of them and neither is included in the stock slackware) were manually upgraded by me using the latest sources. The versions that I initially installed from slackbuilds.org were slightly outdated.
