Announcing Slackware Linux 11!

Filed under
Slack

We are proud to announce that Slackware Linux version 11.0 has been finally released; it took some time but is well worth the wait. You can read the official announcement here. Slackware 11.0 contains the 2.4.33.3 Linux kernel, 2.6.17.13 in /extra and 2.6.18 in the /testing directory; the default boot option is the dependable 2.4.33.3 kernel, but this time we included more choices and support for 2.6.x kernels.

This Slackware version is by far the most cutting edge ever released, it includes KDE version 3.5.4 (including the Amarok media player), XFCE 4.2.3.2, the latest versions of Firefox and Thunderbird, plus SeaMonkey 1.0.5 (replacing the Mozilla suite). It also includes glibc-2.3.6, gcc-3.4.6, X11R6.9.0 from X.Org, and more!

Buy a Beta?

I'm sorry, that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. No wonder they're making so much money when there are people prepared to pony up for Betas (and a pretty crap one at that).

They should give you three free copies of the finished item for helping them out!

With Microsoft, you only had to pay once, and they take care of you.

What I find interesting is that you cheerfully gloat about how you actually paid to test someone else's software!...And felt good about it! :puzzled: :spy:

I don't know about you or others out there, but I would NEVER pay to be someone's guinea pig! Do test pilots pay to test the latest prototypes? NO! Companies pay them to risk their lives and such. The question is: Why are you paying Microsoft to use test versions of Vista? That just doesn't make sense!

Your comment is pretty unfair considering one (Microsoft) is a Multi-Billion dollar company that can afford as much bandwidth and services as it wants, VS a volunteer developer who does things for the love of it.

If your bank can't handle standards...

Then it's time to muscle your bank or switch to another. My mom's wouldn't work with anything else than MSIE, the flaw was fixed and voila no need to change browser identification.

Sony Xperia devices are sendng your data to China

If you are using a Sony Xperia device running either Android 4.4.2 or 4.4.4 it’s advised (by me) that you install a custom ROM on your device. Several reports have appeared online that the stock firmware on these devices contains Baidu spyware that is discreetly sending data back to servers in China, you do not need to have installed any software on your phone as it’s bundled into the firmware.

Nexus 6 Pre-Orders Were A Joke

Today, the Nexus 6 went up for pre-order on the Google Play Store for a grand total of five minutes by my count. No warning, no announcements, no broadcasts from the Nexus Twitter account, no excitement from Sundar Pichai or any other Android leaders, nothing. I, like many of you, had no idea that pre-orders had even started. And by the time I tried to go order, it was too late. Sold out, gone. Nexus 4 all over again. Read more
