in praise of 8.1...


i know this is a little late in coming and 9 is already on its way.

just want to put my piece in here. for me, this has constantly been the best distro of all my puny 3 years with linux. my thanks to the people who put this together and continually put in so much effort to make the slack lover's dreams come true. Don't know where else to put my appreciation (besides in buying the official discs of course). since this is the official slack forum, i'll put it here.

mods, if i posted in the wrong place or if this is an unnecessary post, sorry about that.

Seems very Slack specific to me... I wouldn't worry about 9.0 anytime soon, Patrick has a lot of compiling to do to get everything switched over to glibc 3.2.

I ran Slack 8.0 on a server for about a year, nothing big, about 30 users. I also had Slack 7.1 on another crate for about a year... both insanely stable. Now I've got 8.1 on just about everything in the house and I'm not looking back... I'm honestly going to have a hard time switching up to 9.0 in 6 months to a yeasr from now.

Yeah Slack 8.1, long time in coming, but it just kicks the pants off of all of the other 2.4.18 based distro offerings.

Cheers,

Finegan

This is the 1st distro I've kept on my home pc in ages - it is perfect for what I want and allows all my hardware to run flawlessly - the first time for me as I have an nForce board and other distros have always had problems with it which have made me hit a dead end in terms of productivity

Now I have sound, lan and graphics working flawlessly

Yep, slackware 8.1 rocks! I have tried so many Linux Distros, that it really was refreshing to see how simple, and stable Slack was. I've been using it for about 3 years now, and 8.1 is the best yet IMHO.

.... but as always I anxiously await 9.0 ;-) As for where to put our appreciation, I completely agree, we need to support Patrick and Slackware by showing our support and purchasing the official CDs. Long live slackware!
