Count it as an honor, when something you said/wrote is taken in another direction by an artistic soul.

I've always seen those two indicators work in tandem.

Looks nervously for moderators.

One day we will come here (to LQ) and see that 15.0 has hit the streets...

What do we do next?

I think it's the other way round [unless I'm misunderstanding]. The USA is more soused in political correctness than any other country on Earth. I admit that things are pretty bad over here in the UK, but the USA is about as far as it can go. I'm glad I'm not a student at one of the universities over there, they look like breeding grounds for unfettered lunacy in comparison to what they once were.

Isn't there, first, a week due of why not this kernel and why that particular X of guesswork and complaints?

Are you sure that USA in terms political correctness has the crown? IMO you should take a look at Canada because vs the USA; because, I think they take the cake. The USA after all just elected Trump one of the most politically incorrect people I've heard talk. I think over half the people who voted for him voted just because they wanted to vote the politically incorrect route lol.

No I'm not sure, now that you come to mention Canada. My knowledge of Canada and Canadian politics is extremely slim, I freely admit to knowing next to nothing about the place apart from the fact that they have a beautiful national park [Banff] which I hope to visit some day.

This thread seems to be drifting from its topic which, taking into the account the fact that it didn't really have one, isn't very surprising.

Traditionally I would wait a few months and see if early adopters found reasons to avoid the new release, and then if all seemed well I would start using it in non-critical systems, and months after that perhaps start using it in mission-critical systems.

Not this time, though.

This time, I'm going to be one of the early adopters.

As soon as the 15.0 announcement hits the ChangeLog, I'm installing it on my every-day use laptop and using the hell out of it.

I say let's all just jump in and thrash out any issues. This is arguably the most important Slackware release ever and I intend to help support it as soon as possible.
