Slackware 13.0 Released!

Slackware is the oldest surviving Linux distribution. Now Patrick Volkerding has released version 13.0 of this distribution that aims to keep things simple.

The biggest news in the release announcement is the addition of the official 64-bit port. Of course, this should not be very exciting for the readers of Lightweight Linux as we are happy to continue using our 32-bit hardware. In addition to the KDE4.2.4, Slackware 13.0 provides the users with XFCE 4.6.1. And of course, you can always choose to install some of the lightweight window managers if you intend to use Slack with an old computer.

I really like your short IceWM tutorial. I recently upgraded a ThinkPad T20 (Pent III 512mb ram 700 mZh) from Slackware 12.2 to Slackware 13.0 ... the default KDE is a bit iffy with this setup so I got IceWM from, compiled it, etc and now with your excellent tutorial I am running IceWM ... and documenting it.
