Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I too think we're getting closer, niels.horn. Perhaps before the end of June. 13.0 is looking wonderful indeed.
When it is released folks let us leave our bit torrent clients open for an extended time.
I think it is an excellent idea to consider making a financial contribution to Slackware. That is, get a subscription, buy the CDs/DVD, or make a donation at the store.
This will ensure that PV and the Slackware team can continue to develop our favourite OS.
I'm with Tex. I think it's a bit late in the cycle to expect any major changes such as a kernel version update. If the version number hadn't already been bumped then I might entertain the possibility, but the version bump suggests to me that we're entering "Release Candidate" time and the rest will just be bugfixes and other making it 'Ready (TM)' activity.
The Linux kernel 2.6.30 version is supposed to contain many filesystem improvements, mostly regarding the EXT4 filesystem.
IMO it would be a mistake not to ship with a 2.6.30.x kernel now that EXT4 is the default on the Slackware installer.
If Pat V considers the newest "stable" kernel to be stable enough, then probably it will be included, if not, if you want it, you'll have to compile it. Personally I've found that the latest kernels even tho marked "stable" are not that stable.
Hmm. Just checked kde4.3 release schedule. 4.3.0 shpuld be there around July 28. I rememer, long time ago there were talks that due to the very good relations between slack team and kde dev team, slack 13 should be with 4.3. Thus my guess 13 will be there in the end of julu. Anyway i am running 64 bit current on my vaio and i really love it. Thanks to all the team for the excellent job. I dont even use xorg.conf anymore with my very bad ati card
The KDE 4.3 date may slip, or there may be show-stoppers in it. I may be wrong but I don't think Pat will wait for that and KDE 4.3 will show up in 13.1. I'll be very surprised if we don't see a release on or around 1st July (but that's just my guess)
