According to Greek mythology, Apollo placed a curse on Cassandra so that no one would ever believe her predictions. She even predicted her own murder by Clytemnestra but failed to prevent it.

To know more, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cassandra.

Hard choice coming up. New PC due to be delivered to-morrow. I ordered it when I saw that 14 RC1 was out and I thought the final release would arrive before the PC.

So do I
  1. ignore the PC until 14 is released.
  2. install 13.37 knowing that I will replace it in a few days?
  3. use Windows for a few days?

4. install Slackware 13.37 and read UPGRADE.TXT when Slackware 14 will be released.

@arubin: You could install RC4, the final likely won't be that different.

I'll ignore the pc

Patience is a virtue and a quality all slackers should cultivate, allowing a product to mature before enjoying it

It's part of the enjoyment

*sry to be a bit philosophical coz to me slackware has become a way of life xD

I used Eric's script to create an rc4 usb installer and then have just updated. It really is going to be an EXCELLENT release.

God willing, Slackware 14.0 will be released before "SpaceBalls 2: The Search for More Money" is released in theaters.

Please tell me this is a real thing. I've been in a Mel Brooks deprived state for years, to the point that I've watched History of the World 2 times this month.

I'm sorry... I'm laughing too hard at my desk to post anything else...

Edit: Finally stopped laughing.

Either that or Hardware Wars 2 goes into production.

Or simply install 13.37, which is a very fine release, and leave it at that for some time. I'm using it on my workhorse PC right now. No rush to replace anything.

4. Insert unused hard disk; install CentOs 6.3; add a repo install other applications; get missing dependency error. Pick up the pieces (see CentOS FAQ).

Open up browser with two tabs, one at the Slackware Change logs; the other at LQ. Wear out the F5 (refresh) key.

*sigh*
