    I haven't been using official packages so for now, I'll lay off.

    Good to see a new slack release. It's also good that Pat seems in better health as he didn't mention his illness to much in this release. :)

    I wonder why Slack still hasn't moved to a 2.6.x series kernel as the default. I can't think of any other distro that still ships with a 2.4 kernel.

    ^ Pat has explained exactly why in the RELEASE_NOTES. With 2.6.10 in /testing, people who want it still have it. Pat also explains this will probably be the last release where 2.4.x ise default.
