my favorite about code names is that I can never tell what the hell the version of the OS is. I'm so glad the code names for slackware are numerical.

so good...

You know, this new logo-thing is SO good, that they are thinking about using it as weapon of mass destruction?

it's slackwars now!

Edit: Currently, 50.56 percent of 89 voters found the new logo to be "ugly" or consider ugly to be a "compliment" for it.

"But OMG!!! a boot image was added to slackware!!!"
I mentioned this heresy in the other thread, but nobody took the bait. Next we will have no /etc/inittab, autologin to runlevel 4 -no make that the 'new' GUI runlevel 5, running as default user root, with all the ports open, a GUI installer, and a Bob Dobbs avatar as a desktop assistent!

Which means that all people who didn't vote just don't care about it.

It's not a big deal. I've been working like this for a year, because running "init 4" as root each time you want to use KDE is annoying.

what? `startx` doesn't work with KDE when you have the proper .xinitrc file in your home directory?

I find the text console more pleasing, especially when all I'm doing for the session is compiling/installing or moving some things around. It's fun going to a coffee shop and writing script or something with just the console open and people wonder what the hell you are doing.

What's even sadder is that I use vim so much that even as I type thing I'm trying to delete lines with 'dd'.

I should browse the net at a coffee shop in just `links` that would be awsome! or watch a movie with aaxine!... honestly... why is aalib there? how offten does one need to spam an ASCII art image of bob dobs? Not to mention cacaview...

well... I was going to past an ascii image of dobbs but his face appeared melted... that and it was a bit extreem

Wow. We are still talking about the logo? PV made his choice. I'm fine with it. This isn't an issue for me.

it's the first time i've seen it - when did it come out? but yeah, it's pretty awful imo - especially compared to the original logo which was completely classic and kick @ss. i guess that's what happens when you try to improve on perfection.

Agreed. The old logo is timeless, classic. I'm okay with the new logo.
