Anyway, I think "Millennium Edition" has been used already by some obscure 3rd rate software company.

If you’re superstitious think of Slackware 13 as Slackware D, Slackware 15, or even Slackware 1101.

In the Slackware history there was the case when Slackware skipped from version 4.0 to 7.0.

Yes, Patrick should fill in the gaps.
So what if it confuses people when they're told to upgrade from 12.2 to 5?

Once I've gone through the process of configuring slackware, nothing will confuse me, LOL

Hi,

Slackware 13.0 is still Slackware! Whatever PV decides to release as we are still getting some Slack.

I haven't checked the slackware website, but does it actually say anywhere that it's going to be 13.0? You remember the lengthy thread about the need for slackware 64. None of the slackware guys spilled the beans

The official store is taking pre-orders for 13.0.

I've found 13 to be more lucky than unlucky. Friday 13, is especially lucky.

BTW, I don't believe in luck or superstition and neither should you, if you do, watch this:

If by any chance this coming version does happen to come out on April 13, then I think that on the front of the disc, there should be a Bob Dobbs design, and the disc should be a DVD9 dual layer disc. Layer1, Slackware Linux, and layer2, the Subgenius movie Arise! (A DVD-Video/DVD-ROM) It would be a Slackware/Church of the Subgenius Special edition version of Slackware. That would be really cool!

So long we have, to beat the Ghost in the Machine:

1 - Slackware 1701-C (letters and numbers and movies)

2- Slackware 5 (funny to see people's face trying to upgrade from 12.2 to 5!)

3- Slackware 13013 "Bob" Edition with "The Real Truth Inside" and a bonus DVD

4- Slackware 3000 Plus Enhanced Trillenium Advanced Pro Edition

and,of course:

5- Slackware 42 -The Answer

:-)
