Last time I visited changelog64 , a major up haul to slackware current was done, new xfce, kde releases and a new 3.18 kernel. This indicates a possible 14.2 Slackware will be released in due time when stability is deemed.

Last week I installed the Red Hat Enterprise Linux distribution for the first time and unlike Fedora it felt smoother than a breeze.

The installation GUI is polished as an Enterprise grade toolkit. The general installation procedures were trivial but when a step regarding the Red Hat Subscription Management this needed to be skipped.
