But thanks to all the plastic we eat, our thin skin will never decompose!

Just imagine:


... people wrestling in the last minute shopping lines for the new year holidays and 15.0 hits release!

The panic!

The running!

The joy at home!

Sailing into the new year with 15.0 and full sails

I predict Slackware 15.0 will be released in one month, so the middle of January 2022.

It'll be a Kisstm'ass present...I say December 25th it rolls out. (when we were little kids, my grandpa would take his teeth out and try to say 'Merry Christmas', but it always sounded like "Mewwy Kisstm'ass!". Naturally we laughed like crazy and I'm sure he was doing it partially on purpose just to get people to giggle and laugh)

*Queue the Beat (then) if or when, for it to become.. "an istrument" rather than a broken record.

Agreed. But this thread is ready for closing, and burying at a crossroads with a stake through its heart, beyond hope of resurrection.
It's been educational. You should all now be able to tell your backsides from donkeys. Hands up if you're still confused.

This is an extremely good guess. I mean, I would have liked 2021-12-21 to prove the Mayans were pretty close, but the kernel patch to fix mem= still hasn't landed. But we have Plasma 5.23.5 coming on the 4th, new 21.12.1 applications on the 6th, and a new Frameworks 5.90 on the 8th. Give an additional week to find and fix any regressions. But that's a Saturday, and Eugenia from OSNews always used to ridicule me for releasing on a Friday or Saturday saying the media would ignore it. The following Monday is the 17th.
