Slackware, Slax Patrick Volkerding, Slackware's maintainer, announced that Slackware 10.2 is going into beta: "I think it's time to consider this to be mostly frozen and concentrate on beta testing in preparation for the Slackware 10.2 release, so there won't be too many more upgrades and additions."

Yeah thats true - but I have to say, despite being a slacker, i've never compiled my own kernel. Slackware as it is already requires some TLC to get it to meet my requirements following install.

To be honest, I don't have the time to learn how to compile the kernel properly. I did try once, but there are so many different howto's on the topic it's unbelievable. If I did have the time, I would like to do it though - especially for my laptop.

But Slackware is a great distro - very powerful, fast and secure, and I can't wait for 10.2 ;)
