Slackware 14
 
Hi all Slackware users. Let's subscribe the new version slackware 14 at slackware.com. They need help and is only $50 on slackware DVD 14.
Thanks.

SLackware needs a better way to support itself.

I can't give $50 right now!

There is a big fuzz with raspberry pi and that kind of hardware!

Selling cheap hardware with full working Slackware on it isn't a good idea?

You could buy a T-shirt, or make a donation. I will buy 14.0 when released.

Make a donation to Slackware

You can pre-order 14, take a look at the store.slackware.com

It's nice feature if Subscribe for donation exist in Store because Paypal can't set automatically to send donation every month. CMIIW.

I bought 2 tshirts and some case badges a few days ago. Nice quality heavy weight T's, I love em only I accidentally ordered one in 2X so it fits like a tent.

I've been meaning to buy a few T-Shirts and maybe the Essentials Book for references.

It's a shame that Red Hat have so much resources. And Slackware, that is a an amazing distro, have so much less.

Sometimes less is more.

Just a quick note to say that Slackware releases around once yearly, so shelling $50 once a year really isn't much, especially considering most of that goes to Pat (and maybe some of the others) rather than to those making the included software. That is, if you consider the true value of all the free software you get even in a typical Slackware DVD, it's an awful lot of money.

Tell that to Microsoft regarding Windows 8.:rolleyes:

Yes, in Slackware's case, less is definitely more, and it's better as well. Slackware is created and published by a handful of people who promote a higher quality of standards rather than just pushing stuff out, waiting to see what happens, and then repeating it over and over again regardless of what the community says to them.

Having been a long time Slackware user and subscription holder. The price of the subscription to help ensure Pat and the team can continue is a very small price to pay for the product quality they consistently deliver.

I also am a fan of their T-Shirts too and own several!

Just my .02 worth.... :)

Sure wish they'd carry big an tall t-shirts.
Nothing they have fits me. :-(
