You are terribly wrong as usual. But yes, i abandoned Slackware. Sadly, it doesn't have a future. CRUX is more decent alternative.

Mind you, it's not like I'm contributing much of use here at the moment myself, but I do run Slackware on a couple of machines. No massive rush to update those, but I'll get round to it at some point after release.

Actually, I might keep the Atom netbook on 14.2. That thing has more or less outlived its usefulness.
I usually utilize old laptops. Try to install 14.2 on a new laptop. Have fun. Double fun is net install.

Been there, done that. Had to install -current since 14.2 couldn't see my NVMe.

But if that issue has been solved in -current, it will be in 15.0, n'est-ce pas?

If you really want to have fun, try to install -current on a Chromebook.

So up to Slackware-10, you could get the whole thing on CD? I think I might well have done a full install if I'd been a slacker in those days,

Slackware 10 was 4 CDs. Later versions became 6 CDs, and then one double-sided DVD, and finally we have arrived at download-only.

If I remember correctly, those extra cds contained the sources. They were not needed for the installer.

Two of the four CDs were the source. They were useful if one needed the source and had only dial-up.

It's a BETA, hence bugs to be rooted out.

Tried Void, didn't click with me.

Slackware has always been my first choice since 7 or 8 was released, Arch is a close second.

I've used all the distros that you mention. Arch and Void are nice, but, I'll stick with Slackware, thank you. Out of the three distros you mention Slackware is the most reliable. Beta 1 is stable for me. You should attempt to be creative with your trolling.
Anyway let's get back on topic please. Slackware 15.0 is now a Beta release. This is a good thing. I don't have any bugs to report.

Oh? Using two accounts here on LQ, just to be able to offend everyone and still pretend to contribute?
It's hard to believe. So please show me which of your posts were meant to address your bugs. I will honestly read them all.

Have you noticed a pattern with these threads? They always start with a post that is provocative but not so obviously trollish that people will just ignore it. Instead it seems to be making a valid criticism of our much loved distro, so we feel we have to answer it. Over the next few days, the thread develops into a flame war and finally gets locked or ignored. And the day after that, the next one pops up.

Yes. We're getting a lot of new trolls registering here on the official Slackware forum. Some people feel the need to be extremely negative. I don't understand that need.
Slackware 15.0 is shaping up to be a stellar release. Many thanks to Mr. Volkerding and the entire Slackware Team for their efforts. We are grateful for Slackware 15.0 Beta 1.
