Eric Hameleers: Slackware does exactly what I want it to do. (The Slack World)

The Slack World has an interview with Eric Hameleers about the release of Slackware 13.1. "Looking back at the the months before the release of Slackware 13.1, I would say that we wanted to improve 13.0 in a number of aspects and make 13.1 a fairly short development cycle-make it a "bug fix release" as it were. Obviously things went a bit different. There are several exciting updates in Slackware 13.1 which could have justified a 14.0 release instead of the 13.1 point release. A big and visible change is of course the update to KDE Software Compilation 4.4.3 which uses ConsoleKit and PolicyKit. The combination with a very recent kernel and X.Org allow many people to have a pleasant out-of-the-box experience with modern hardware."
