Thank you for releasing Slackware 14. I will be upgrading my 3 slackware 13.37 boxes as soon as possible.
I downloaded the torrent last night and got 1.2 MiB/s, which is maxed out for my connection. Fast and free, seed seed seed!

Thanks to the Slackware team for this wonderful release!

Good thing Pat realeased 14.0 now - I was holding my breath after the RC5 release.

I know - this would be the greatest version of slackware ever.


Thanks from the bottom of my heart to Pat and the team.

Ordered! This will be my third Slackware T-Shirt. My colleagues had already commented on how frequently I wore the other two, now I'll have three to rotate between.

Alright....just ordered one of the new Slackware 14 shirts. This makes my third....standard, 1337 and now 14.
Email confirmation was pretty instantaneous from the Slackware Store. I'm all set!

Hooray! And I just came into a bit of cash to spend on some slackstuff. Perfect timing.

Edit: I just noticed the polos have a pocket now, and have dropped in price. I ordered two, plus a couple of Tees, and a DVD copy.
