Red face Something special is coming


I don't know what it is but I've got a feeling (cowbell?)
This is a pointless thread. What are you feeling in relation to Slackware?

I'm more interested that the OP's presence flickers between Detroit, Michigan and Nagoya, Japan.

I have a feeling Slackware 15.0 is going to be pretty special.

Been using Slackware since 3.0, and there have been good releases and bad releases and a few "nah, I'll pass" releases, but 15.0 is the first release that has me chomping at the bit to upgrade my every-day use laptop ASAP.

Agreed! I find myself engaging in pointless, albeit enjoyable speculation about what Pat is going to add next to the -current branch. I wonder about KDE-plasma and the 5.0 kernel.
I'm not a long-timer like you are, ttk. I've been a happy Slacker since 10.0. Development is quite active these days.
I will be moving several of my -current machines to 15.0 after the big release. Interesting days ahead.

The dreaded 5.0 kernel?
Well, historically speaking, the *.0 where the breaking releases, and hearing that 5.0 did away with the block device layer stack makes me wonder - will Pat bite the bullet or lean back on this one?

Plasma?
As much as i liked and enjoyed KDE 3 the KDE 4 era made me wish for Slackware become KDE free, I'd rather had MATE per default instead, provided it requires less resources to be maintained - the KDE train is eventually going in a direction where i can't possibly imagine Slackware be going - let it be just me.

But then again, Pat dropped Gnome for much less IMO?

Same here, only I never liked KDE, it just took way too long to start. So it was GNOME for me until that went down the drain, too.
MATE and/or XFCE are good replacements.

I've heard nothing but bad things about Brave, and that it's a total swindle.

Brave-browser is just an idea to use another form of donation,it is not mandatory,you can enable or disable ads.
