Talking 4th of July


Isn't this a nice day for launching Slackware 10? RC1 has quickly becoming RC2, hmm, Pat should seriously consider my suggestion.

(yes, i'm bored)

lol, I seriously doubt that it'll be released on the 4th of July (and yes, I shuddered as I thought back to the speech in the film as well) but you can hope :P

Personally I think it'll be released sooner than that - I'm guessing 26th of June

I just posted in another thread saying that Slackware 10 should be RTM tomorrow. Shipping should begin in about a week and a half.

tomorrow, huh? seeing as how i got started with slackware two days after 9.1 came out, and this is my first version change, can i assume that Pat doesn't waste a lot of time in RC stages (unlike some packages we are all familiar with....hmmmh....xine, i am looking in your direction)?

To be honest, the -current is constantly under testing from a ton of slack users, so the RC stages are (almost) meaningless; for me they just serve as a headsup on a new release. I guess it's the last point at which isos start getting built and tested as a final product - personally I am amazed how well it is all coordinated - am incredible amount of stuff goes on in the changelog and yet it all works in the end - I guess Patrick is just an incredible guy ;)

(No, I'm not hitting on him...:P)
