Hey folks, I think it's time for Slackware 13.37 (hopefully this helps
make up for our lack of code names) release candidate 1!
After a lot of testing and consideration, we've decided to go with the
recently released 2.6.37.3 Linux kernel which seems to work best for X,
contains support for Speakup, and looks like a better kernel branch to
be using as we move forward.
Please test so we can have a stable release soon. :-)

1337 - sounds like such a perfect Slackware release, so I disassembled my desktop pc, cleaned all the dust from it, changed wires, thermal paste. Then carefully assembled, moved important data somewhere safe, formatted windows 7 and now it is clean, ready for such important Slackware release. All that is left is wait

Looking forward to the release party! But I suspect that kernel 2.6.38.1 and xfce 4.8 will keep me running with -current when it restarts.

Such as 'killing' a Cuban tobacco pipe, every night?

Do not overdo it! After the second dose, you become high!

Does holding tea ceremonies every evening count?

P.S.
Out of curiosity, who or what is Bob?
