Review: Slackware 13.0

Filed under
Slack

ericsbinaryworld.com/blog: When Slackware 13 came a few months ago on the LXF magazine, I decided to throw it into Virtualbox to see how it has changed. One difference this time around is that I now have the dual core machine so I am running Slackware on that machine.
