Slack

Among all the posts announcing the release of Ubuntu 11.04 was the few that acknowledged the release of Slackware 13.37. Slackware continues to boast a loyal following because of its rock hard stability and security. It was once known as not the best choice for beginners, but has become quite easy and carefree over the years. Perhaps Slackware's most notable characteristic is its practice of providing a turn-key system that doesn't alter the original developers' work.

This release brings users KDE 4.5.5, Xfce 4.6.2, Linux 2.6.37.6, X.Org X Server 1.9.5, GCC 4.5.2, Qt 4.7.0, Firefox 4, GIMP 2.6.11, KOffice, Xine, MPlayer, Audacious, and Juk. It also includes some lesser known applications such as Skanlite, Geeqie, Pan, XMMS, and SeaMonkey. Those that wish others can use slackpkg to search and install software from remote mirrors in the tradition of APT.

Conversation With Jonathan Thomas of OpenShot

I think my initial fascination with Linux was based on rebuilding all my old, broken computers laying around my office/garage. I was having a ton of fun, pulling components out of old computers, installing various distros and seeing what worked/didn’t work. And then there was the 3D desktop cube, which was pretty awesome! Pretty soon I had built my kids their own computer, with “safe” web-browsing, education games, etc. It was many months of playing around with Linux before I learned about Python and started slowly getting more into the programming side of things.
