We are proud to announce that Slackware Linux version 11.0 has been finally released; it took some time but is well worth the wait. You can read the official announcement at this link.

Slackware 11.0 contains the Linux kernel, in /extra and 2.6.18 in the /testing directory; the default boot option is the dependable kernel, but this time we included more choices and support for 2.6.x kernels. Read More...

Since ASRock was established in 2002 with the 3 C's--Creative, Considerate, and Cost-effective--we have seen their motherboards continually improve. Even while their low price point remains the same, the designs for these motherboards are constantly improving as we have seen over the past year.

A team of Open Source engineers from Catania, Italy and Bristol have developed a 64-bit processor design which is free for anyone to play with.

The collective, dubbed Simply RISC develops and supports CPU cores, peripherals and interfaces released under the GNU General Public License (GPL).

The new processor called the S1 core, is a cutdown version of the OpenSPARC T1 multiprocessor for embedded devices such as PDAs, STBs and digital cameras.

A recent survey of nearly 15,000 linux users by DesktopLinux.com ( http://www.desktoplinux.com/articles/AT5816278551.html) revealed Ubuntu Desktop Linux to be the most popular - by a drastic margin.

The most popular desktop of Linux today is... well, most of you can already guess without seeing the scores: Ubuntu.

Ubuntu, with 29.2 percent of the vote, has been the hottest community Linux since early 2005.

It’s no secret by now that wireless networking is quickly replacing tangled messes of cables in many homes and small businesses. No more fishing wires through walls, no more tripping over wires laid across doorways, and no more yelling at Fido or Fluffy when think Ethernet cables are chew toys.

Several months ago, some gormless weasel from somewhere stirred up a fuss when he wrote an essay on one of the Nixer sites asking whether the Slackware distro mattered any longer. Its not really worth googling to find the author and the site where it ran, since it seems to have created an inadvertent meme in the Linux community as advocates, fanboys and editorial writers picked up upon the concept of Slackware 'mattering.' Misguided and myopic as the essay was, it certainly provoked a reaction. For a number of very good reasons, the question stuck in many a craw, and triggered a defensive barrage of articles telling the clueless author just why Slack remains a vital distro and a necessary flavor option in the distro hit list, despite the fact that most other distros are moving on to DVD size releases and trying to outrace each other to be latest and greatest..

15 years have passed since Linux appeared. On August 25th 1991, Linus Benedict Torvalds has announced the world about his new operating system:

"Hello everybody out there using minix -

I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones. This has been brewing since April, and is starting to get ready. I'd like any feedback on things people like/dislike in minix, as my OS resembles it somewhat (same physical layout of the file-system (due to practical reasons) among other things).

I've currently ported bash(1.08) and gcc(1.40), and things seem to work. This implies that I'll get something practical within a few months, and I'd like to know what features most people would want. Any suggestions are welcome, but I won't promise I'll implement them :-)

Linus (torva...@kruuna.helsinki.fi)

PS. Yes - it's free of any minix code, and it has a multi-threaded fs. It is NOT portable (uses 386 task switching etc), and it probably never will support anything other than AT-harddisks, as that's all I have :-(."
