distribution for UNIX veterans as well as an easy-to-use system for <br>
beginners.  Slackware includes everything you'll need to run a powerful
server or workstation.  Each Slackware package follows the setup and <br>
installation instructions from its author(s) as closely as possible, <br>
offering you the most stable and easily expandable setup.<br>
Here are some of the advanced features of Slackware 13.0:<br>
- Runs the version of the Linux kernel from <a class="moz-txt-link-abbreviated" href=""></a>.<br>
  Also included is a kernel patched with Speakup to support speech<br>
  synthesizers providing access to Linux for the visually impaired<br>
  community.  The 2.6.x kernel series has matured into a stable<br>
  kernel, and provides reliable performance for your desktop or<br>
  your production server.<br>
- System binaries are linked with the GNU C Library, version 2.9.<br>
  This version of glibc also has excellent compatibility with<br>
  existing binaries.<br>
- X11 based on the X.Org Foundation's modular X Window System.<br>
  There's been much activity in the X development world, and the<br>
  improvements in terms of performance and hardware support are<br>
  too numerous to mention them all here.<br>
- Installs gcc-4.3.3 as the default C, C++, Objective-C, <br>
  Fortran-77/95, and Ada 95 compiler.<br>
- Support for fully encrypted network connections with OpenSSL,<br>
  OpenSSH, OpenVPN, and GnuPG.<br>
- Apache (httpd) 2.2.13 web server with Dynamic Shared Object <br>
  support, SSL, and PHP 5.2.10.<br>
- PCMCIA, CardBus, USB, IEE1394 (FireWire) and ACPI support.  This<br>
  makes Slackware a great operating system for your laptop.<br>
- The udev dynamic device management system for Linux 2.6.x.<br>
  This locates and configures most hardware automatically as it<br>
  is added (or removed) from the system, and creates the access<br>
  nodes in /dev.  It also loads the kernel modules required by<br>
  sound cards and other hardware at boot time.<br>
- New development tools, including Perl 5.10.0, Python 2.6.2,<br>
  Ruby 1.8.7-p174, Subversion 1.6.4, git-1.6.4, mercurial-1.2.1,<br>
  graphical tools like Qt designer and KDevelop, and much more.<br>
- Updated versions of the Slackware package management tools make it<br>
  easy to add, remove, upgrade, and make your own Slackware packages.<br>
  Package tracking makes it easy to upgrade from Slackware 12.2 to <br>
  Slackware 13.0 (see CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT).  The slackpkg tool can<br>
  also help update from an older version of Slackware to a newer one,<br>
  and keep your Slackware system up to date.  In addition, the<br>
  slacktrack utility (in extra/) will help you build and maintain<br>
  your own packages.<br>
- Web browsers galore!  Includes KDE's Konqueror 4.2.4, <br>
  SeaMonkey 1.1.17 (this is the replacement for the Mozilla<br>
  Suite), and the immensely popular Firefox 3.5.2, as well as<br>
  the Thunderbird email and news client with advanced<br>
  junk mail filtering.<br>
- The complete K Desktop Environment (KDE) version 4.2.4, including<br>
  the KOffice productivity suite, networking tools, GUI development<br>
  with KDevelop, multimedia tools (including the amazing Amarok<br>
  music player and K3B disc burning software), the Konqueror web<br>
  browser and file manager, dozens of games and utilities,<br>
  international language support, and more.<br>
- A collection of GTK+ based applications including pidgin-2.5.9,<br>
   gimp-2.6.6, gkrellm-2.3.2, gxine-0.5.903, xchat-2.8.6, xsane-0.996,<br>
   and pan-0.133.<br>
- A repository of extra software packages compiled and ready to run.<br>
  This includes the Java(TM) 2 Software Development Kit Standard<br>
  Edition, an MPlayer browser plugin, alternate Intel video drivers<br>
  for X, and more (see the /extra directory).<br>
- Many more improved and upgraded packages than we can list here.  For<br>

Slackware Linux is also available by subscription.  When we release a
new <br>
version of Slackware (which is normally once or twice a year) we ship
it <br>
to you and bill your credit card for a reduced subscription price<br>

For shipping options, see the Slackware store website.  Before ordering<br>
express shipping, you may wish to check that we have the product in
We make releases to the net at the same time as disc production begins,<br>
so there is a lag between the online release and the shipping of media.<br>
But, even if you download now you can still buy the official media
You'll feel good, be helping the project, and have a great decorative<br>
item perfect for any computer room shelf.  :-)<br>
