Yes, I have already pre-ordered it from the web site.
Now that I have learned how to keep all my important data in DropBox and keep the DropBox folder in it's own partition (which is excluded from my back ups) and keep daily back ups of '/' & '/home' externally using Clonezilla, all of this thanks to the help that I received in this forum, I feel pretty safe in trying stuff.
Although doing a fresh install requires time to re-install my additional software, it gives me practice with Slackware & linux. Or, if I want, I feel secure in the knowledge that by simply restoring a back up gives me back a working system immediately.
I know that I could use VirualBox but learning about, and experimenting with, Slackware has become my hobby.
BTW, this is the first time that I have successfully installed -current, although I have tried 3 times before and failed miserably - don't know why, just did.
