Why he believes it to be so is probably due to the large amount of substantial upgrades in the -current branch lately. Why he says it...I don't know either. But I'm looking forward to it as well...as long as it's stable. No rush.

Slackware-current works fine for me........ so I'd guess that 9.2 or 10 will be fine

9.2 / 10 will likely be release once patrick beleives the 2.6 kernel is stable enough.

I don't care how long it takes to pump out another release. 9.1 with a custom 2.4.25 works just fine for me. I would like to see the 2.6 kernel grow up a bit before Slackware will make it the default. Keeping it as an option would be nice. I can see 9.2 being a update release with 2.4.26, XF864.4, KDE3.2.1, Gnome2.6, etc... and 10 being the 2.6 kernel standard release.

i am using current too with XFree 4.4 and running a kernel 2.6.4(kernel.org) = NO PROBLEMO
I doesn't really matter if they include or not kernel 2.6 as long as you can download it and know how to compile it...

Let them take their time getting the new version to us. You can't rush perfection you know (I should know, I try and rush it all the time, lol). All is good in the Slackware universe Now if we could just speed up ATI's universe a bit and get them to give us some new Xfree drivers all would really be great.
