Hash: SHA1Yes, it is that time again!  After well over a year of planning,
development, and testing, the Slackware Linux Project is proud to
announce the latest stable release of the longest running distribution
of the Linux operating system, Slackware version 14.0!

We are sure you’ll enjoy the many improvements.  We’ve done our best to bring the latest technology to Slackware while still maintaining the stability and security that you have come to expect.  Slackware is well known for its simplicity and the fact that we try to bring software to you in the condition that the authors intended.

Slackware 14.0 brings many updates and enhancements, among which you’ll find two of the most advanced desktop environments available today: Xfce 4.10.0, a fast and lightweight but visually appealing and easy to use desktop environment, and KDE 4.8.5, a recent stable release of the 4.8.x series of the award-winning KDE desktop environment. These desktops utilize udev, udisks, and udisks2, and many of the
specifications from which allow the system administrator
to grant use of various hardware devices according to users’ group
membership so that they will be able to use items such as USB flash
sticks, USB cameras that appear like USB storage, portable hard drives,
CD and DVD media, MP3 players, and more, all without requiring sudo, the
mount or umount command.  Just plug and play.  Slackware’s desktop
should be suitable for any level of Linux experience.

I haven’t been writing in a while. I’ve been busy.

For example, with this:

Scroll to Chapter 7.

Unfortunately, they managed to put as abstract an older version, which I didn’t like, but…hey! this is my first official article in a commercial Security Magazine 🙂 , purchased by >90K people in >80 countries worldwide 😀

Happy me ! 😀

Before you panic: it is just a PHILOSOPHY course! Free on YouTube

About the Course

There is one thing I can be sure of: I am going to die. But what am I to make of that fact? This course will examine a number of issues that arise once we begin to reflect on our mortality. The possibility that death may not actually be the end is considered. Are we, in some sense, immortal? Would immortality be desirable? Also a clearer notion of what it is to die is examined. What does it mean to say that a person has died? What kind of fact is that? And, finally, different attitudes to death are evaluated. Is death an evil? How? Why? Is suicide morally permissible? Is it rational? How should the knowledge that I am going to die affect the way I live my life?
