That's great news, many many thanks to everyone who made it possible! Slackware would be falling behind a bit if this happened later, I'm very glad that Slackware will also be the king of the next-generation systems .
I also want to thank the developers of the unofficial 64-bit ports (such as Slamd64 that I use) for their great effort. They saved the lives of the impatient ones and I'm sure their experiences helped make the official switch much smoother.
Wow! Awesome news!
I'm on Slamd64 at the moment... but I'll definitely be switching now an *official* Slackware 64 is here!
I'm guessing if you need 32 bit libraries (for Google Earth, wine, etc...) it will work fine just installing the 'l' series from Slackware 32?
This is the answer I received from Alan_Hicks on irc channel slackware@oftc
<@alienBOB> We use lib64 for the 64bit
<@Alan_Hicks> Yeah but /usr/lib is pretty much empty.
<@alienBOB> So, 32bit libraries can be installed in lib
<@alienBOB> But we do not _ship_ 32bit compat packages
<@alienBOB> Slackware64 is prepared for it though
