Thanks.
Pre-ordered now.
Partly because I made my first backup of 13.0, after trashing xorg.conf while trying to make my marble trackball scroll better.

I made a small donation!
Maybe a service with newsletters or something like a Slackware Magazine by a $5-$15 would be nice.
Like I said I can't give the $50 now.
I tried to buy a t-shirt but the shipping was more expensive than the t-shirt itself :P

To me the ideal is a small price but paid more often and get a service with that with no shipping costs

The Slackware DVD subscription is $39.95, not $50, and the CD subscription is only $32.99. Considering that Pat releases only about once a year, it's a small price to pay. I've been a subscriber for a /long/ time and highly recommend it as a great way to support the project.

I also pre-ordered Slack14.
A month ago (the bank transaction date is June the 11, 2012) I ordered
some T-shirts per Air mail, but nothing has still arrived. Currently I am in Germany.
Does it usually take so long for the delivery? I already wrote an email to info@store.slackware.com
but got no reply so far.

Be patient. It usually takes quite a long time. Last year I ordered some t-shirts to be shipped to UK and iirc it took 2 months.

I agree with you. For me it's better the shipping cost donated

Sustainable : small donation, more often, more people,...

That's why it's called a donation, not sales. But hey, in fact, there's already a great bonus with that:
Satisfaction that you've helped a good cause

Its really a frightening reality that this simple yet outstanding distribution, which has been around forever, is literally only here today because of the efforts of a few dedicated people. I'm not too fond of Slackware on the desktop but as a server distribution I think its the greatest thing since sliced bread.

My point was that with increase of Linux popularity. More people will use Linux and trying different distros.
Get that people in Slackware is a good deal. With more users come more money!

Some people didn't even know Slackware! And others think that is already dead...


"A distro that exists since the beginning of Linux???"
It's hard to imagine!


And the way this distro works...
The great comments on scripts...
I luv Slackware!
