I upgraded a test box to current, very cool.

I have been using BlueWhite64, a 64-bit version of Slackware with some additional bells and whistles. Is there any reason to switch to Slackware 64-bit instead when the BlueWhite64 works so well. What are the benefits of switching to this new version?

Thumbs up current or stable?

I was running wolvix for some time, then dual booted with slackware current-32 (as it had almost the applications I wanted), until I had it configured and was happy with it. When slackware64current was released 32 replaced wolvix and I have slackware64-current to test and configure as my main system.

I now intend to use slackware13 for my workstation, and test current to move up to and learn from. From my experience, current has been more stable than other distro stable versions. I have learnt very much since moving to only slackware.

i have been running -Current on my laptop since i installed Slackware 10.1 on 2005 and i don't have any issues with it. Everything is running well and i don't need to reinstall whenever next Slackware is released.

The same thing also applies on my desktop at home and also at my office. Everything is running -Current and very stable
