Not upgrading to Slackware 12.1

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 199.164.56.5] on June 03, 2008 06:29 PM
Because my Slackware 11.1 install is still running so perfectly! That is the biggest problem with Slackware - it just works so well that there really isn't any need to upgrade. I tend to upgrade only when glibc becomes outdated enough that building from source becomes problematic. Looking back at my upgrade history, that's been pretty consistent... 7.1 to 9.1 to 11.1, so I guess I'll be due again when 13.1 comes out.

Sorry Pat, I'm sure 12.1 is up to your usual excellent standards, but you're just too good at what you do. It ain't broke, so why fix it? See you in another 18 months or so... ;-)
