Excited About Slackware 13.0
I'm becoming less and less excited about Ubuntu in general for reasons I hope to blog about later when I have more time. So for now I'll just announce that Slackware 13.0 has been released. The biggest feature is 64 bit support and updated packages. I can't wait to dowload it and put it on my main system.
I'm a Linux advocate who treasures freedom in all aspects of life. I have a passion for the Linux Command Line Interface (CLI). I'm on a mission to prove that the CLI is not difficult and hope to show that anything done in the GUI can also be done in the CLI. It might not be the quickest or simplest way, but it can be done.
I'm a desktop guy so I don't deal too much with server administration and developer stuff (though I may touch on such subjects occassionally). This may seem contradictory to some because of my love for the CLI, but I believe the CLI is a great enviroment for a desktop.
