But, menawhile, it is the best logo for linux system I ever seen. Really. So, at this moment I vote for your guy as a logo for slack -current. Bit crazy, but funny.

95% nerd.

I especially liked "Do you have biohazard or warning signs posted in your room?" (no) -- followed by "Should you have biohazard or warning signs posted in your room?" (yes).

Yeah, I LMAO when I saw it. My answers were opposite (ie. Yes followed by No). I've got a big biohazard sticker on the case of my computer. When you think of it, it's a rather silly place to put a sticker like that

Oh! thanks, 95% is too much note for the work, but yes I also have got a radex quarta RD-1706 counter in my room it count particles beta and gamma with 2 pipes.

The logo is not very good but I print t-shirts for me with it, my past logo and t-shirt design was copied year past.

What I do not understand how you know I'm a nerd, are you?, thanks

Of course maintaing -current version on your computer is rather complex task, but having -current gives you some advantages.
I'm at odds on whether your opinion on the meaning of "current" should come into play here. If you view the changelog for Slackware-current, you can clearly see that once in a while (when ready) slack-current gets released as Slackware-XX.Y (i.e. slack-stable)
So for a time after each stable release, even if you are running slack-current, you're running slack-stable.
Slack-current do become slack-stable.
As MS3FGX was saying.

Now, me, Iv'e branded my slack-current install as such, through /etc/motd. Any more I've deemed unnecessary, but you're clearly of another mind If a slack-current gets accepted, kudos to the creator. If not, well, IMHO the Slackware logo embodies the Slackware project, not just the stable release.

I still wonder were you want the slack-current logo to go (i.e. be displayed).

EDIT: didn't see this one...
Quote:
Perhaps I don't precisely understand your question but logos appear usually in places like web sites, splash screens, screen savers etc.
As MS3FGX says, a standard Slackware install do not have the Slackware logo plastered all over the desktop, screensaver, etc.
So the question remains to where the slack-current logo should be displayed.
There are no specific slack-current website. Slackware don't come preconfigured with a Slackware screenssaver or xfce splashscreen (don't know about KDE). And it wasn't until 12.2 or 13.0 that Slackware came with a splashscreen for LILO, which AFAIK don't specify stable or current...

There are developers and contributors of slack project. I am nor developer neither contributor. I am slack user. And decided to use slack -current because of the advantages it gives me, say after I installed -current version I was able to test KDE 4.4. Now I have an idea how it feels and looks.

IMO -current version is handled in the way that I can permanently use it with acceptable level of pain. So why bother any stable version?

Websites, subforums for slack-current? Yeah, they should be. It will be nice if I will find easily help in occasion of some problems with my slack-current.

There will be a community of slack-current users why not grant them with slack-like logo?

Your concept of regarding slackware-current as a separate "distro" is a bit flawed. What we call "slackware-current" is simply the directory tree where changes in packages take place while we work toward a new release (as opposed for the directory trees of previous releases where the only post-release changes occur in the "patches" subdirectory).

Actually, for a while after any stable release (typically a few months), that stable release will be more up to date than the "slackware-current" tree!

This is why: development does not resume for a couple of months because the developers take some time off, and if there are any patches (for serious bugs and security fixes) tey will get added to the "patches" subdirectory of the release, while the "slackware-current" tree will be unmodified!

I hope you do not try to discourage me or anyone else to use slack-current.

I will prefer to stay with slack-current instead of making an upgrade to next stable release. No idea is it safe or not but upgrades are also risky (know that after the upgrade my ubuntu became zombie ubuntu - living dead).

I may understand that the concept of using slack-current in this way may not suit you or other people. But why not? Let's try. We will see - it will work or not.

What Eric is merely saying is what other have already stated in this thread: -current is NOT really a separate version of Slackware.
I don't think anyone is trying to discourage anyone from using -current.
Actually, doing so would be counterproductive for Slackware development team as it is us, users of -current, that provide valuable feedback for them.

You know, when I see the confusion in this thread, I can't help but think Ubuntu has the right idea with their silly animal names. Therefore I propose that the next current be called "Slacking Snake".

Agree. So it will be nice if people who decide to stay with slack-current will be provided with some help or advice.

Perhaps there are readers of this thread who are now curious what is it all about, why some have slack-current other don't have, and how they can get slack-current. Is it some kind of a mystery? I suppose they also should be given a simple explanation. What is it, how it works, what to do to install slack-current. Simple 'slack-current HOWTO'.
