It's unlikely since it's still Slackware and will be maintained by Pat, Robby, Eric, Pieter and the rest of the team. We don't have 64bit specific subforums for any other distro.

I shouldn't think so, there aren't {Debian,Fedora,OpenSUSE,Ubuntu} x86_64 forums.

In fact it was the single one left reason not to use Slackware on ALL my machines. At last, I can grow up my mono-culture, now!

If nothing much else, I at least got a few very good laughs while I read this entire thread from start to end but also, it looks like the proper place to say 'Thank You' to the Slackware team, each and every member/contributor/tester, for their work both up till now, and into the next releases of Slackware, whatever the bit-count. I look forward to the release of Slackware64 on DVD so I can purchase it from the Slackware Store, with a subscription and/or maybe some of whatever goodies are offered that help feed the developer(s) (food, I mean).

(yes, I did post elsewhere about my interest in the 64 bit release, but this thread seems to be the official place for this sentiment)

What a great read... sort of. I certainly got a few laughs out of it. I'm very excited to see slackware64 is finally coming.

I've got a few servers waiting to be rebuilt with Slackware64
