New Poll

Time for new poll for this month. We know that the next release of Slackware will be 13.0. Since it's a big jump on the version number, it will contain big changes too. First of all, it will use KDE 4 instead of staying with KDE 3.5 which has been used for some time. This is a big changes and while many people still prefer KDE 3.5 due to it's stability, the path has been decided by Pat and his crew.

The second big changes is that Slackware 13.0 will come in two separate version, 32 bit and 64 bit. In case you haven't heard, Slackware-Current is now running on two trees, 32 and 64 bit. You can see the announcement on Slackware's main page. Many people have asked for this and now the wait is over.

It also contains lots of changes described on the -Current changelog (32 bit and 64 bit). A brief detail can be seen on CHANGES AND HINTS.

So the poll this month is all about your choice when Slackware 13.0 comes out. What will you use? I'm running this poll for two months, which i hope is enough to see Slackware 13.0 comes out before the poll ended big grin
