Testing some Slackware Linux, Slackware 13.0 x86_64. screen-shot of the KDE desktop, modified. Click on photo for a larger view, after installing this Slackware it seems to run real smooth this is the 64bit and I immediately noticed by sliding in one of my favorite movies it started playing with out downloading anything and usually I have to download extras to play a movie. I did plug in my bluetooth device and have not gotten it to work yet,probably just something I am doing wrong. Follow the links below to read about it and give it a try, so far I like it real well.

After one of the most intensive periods of development in Slackware's history, the long awaited stable release of Slackware 13.0 is ready. This release brings with it many major changes since Slackware 12.2, including a completely reworked collection of X packages (a configuration file for X is no longer needed in most cases), major upgrades to the desktop environments (KDE version 4.2.4 and Xfce version 4.6.1), a new .txz package format with much better compression, and other upgrades all around -- to the development system, network services, libraries, and major applications like Firefox and Thunderbird. We think you'll agree that this version of Slackware was worth the wait. Also, this is the first release of Slackware with native support for the 64-bit x86_64 architecture! Major kudos to Eric Hameleers for all of his work, especially on the 64-bit port.
