Submission + - Slackware 11.0 Released

TitusC3v5 writes: From Pat and the Slackware team:

"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 at this link. Slackware 11.0 contains the Linux kernel, in /extra and 2.6.18 in the /testing directory; the default boot option is the dependable 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, 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!"

As always, feel free to buy your copy at the Slackware Store, or find it for free on one of the many mirrors available.

Computers can figure out all kinds of problems, except the things in the world that just don't add up.
