Lots of Linode love: Slackware 15
Not really a question, just a public expression of love and gratitude to the great folks at Linode for so quickly bringing Slackware 15 to the list of OS's which can be installed. This saves us an hour of upgrading all of the 14.2 to -current whenever we spin up a new one. Thank you!
This is one thing I really like about Linode - how quickly they get new releases on the platform (usually the same day!)
I can understand being one or two versions behind distros that have a short release cycle, but there’s no reason not to carry the current LTS of Ubuntu/Debian (I would have included CentOS here, but we all know that went up the wall.)
