There's one silly religion that's relevant here though: the Church of the Subgenius.

What does the Church of the Subgenius think the number 13?

(Not a rhetorical question. I'm just too lazy to look it up).

By the way: what do you get if you multiply six by nine? 42 [in base 13]. The truth is out there.

I was born on the 13th (of May), there are 13 letters in my name, and if you stick the 1 and the 3 together you get B. Plus the already mentioned connections with The Church Of The SubGenius. That makes 13 OK by me.

Wait just a minute, there was a FAQ entry about skipping version numbers *looks* jup, here it is


Hmmmm, that's not what I'd call a very solid promise. What's with the other distro's? Are they nearing version 13 yet? (whoehahaha, I think not!)
We might even go to version 12.3, 12.4, 12.5 etc so others have the chance to catch up. Cut 'em some slack, so to speak But considering 'superstition bringeth bad luck', maybe we should just make the jump to #13 and come tide or high water, just stick with it.



Shall I ask the famous question that has proven so many times to be the final utterance of the overconfident?? "Slackware 13! What's the worst that could happen?"

I'm voting for one of those silly alliteration distribution names:

* Slackware Bouncing Bobby
* Slackware Buttering Bob
* Slackware Subversive Subgenius
* Slackware Pampering Patrick

Something like that.

I really think Slackware needs a large version boost - Mandriva is already at version 2009. We don't want to look obsolete.

Good point. Current marketting trends would suggest that the following might make a good name.

"Slackware 3000 Pro - Ultimate edition PLUS, with OpenSource Technology"

But should it not be:
Slackware 3000 Pro Advanced++
Ultimate edition PLUS, now with enhanced OpenSource Synergy Technology

It's bad luck to believe in superstition.

Ah, but Slackware 3000 would make it Slackware Millennium Edition.

Then Pat would have to answer the question whether Slackware 3000 is Year 3000 compliant (as it took place here )
