Slackware, Slax Slackware 11.0 contains the 2.4.33.3 Linux kernel (default), 2.6.17.13 in /extra and 2.6.18 in the /testing directory. This Slackware version is by far the most cutting edge ever released, it includes KDE version 3.5.4 (including the Amarok media player), XFCE 4.2.3.2, the latest versions of Firefox and Thunderbird, plus SeaMonkey 1.0.5 (replacing the Mozilla suite). It also includes glibc-2.3.6, gcc-3.4.6, X11R6.9.0 from X.Org, and more.

Pat made a wise move by opting for a last 2.4 release, but I guess this will the last release based on the kernel series as I suspect supporting it in the future will take away too mach valuable time.

that said, hope Pat will be able to continue putting out new release every six months like before ;)

xfce definitely deserves more recognition and 4.4 release may be good enough to make me ditch gnome on my office desktop, KDE still stays on my home machine tough,
