I just upgraded #cwm on my #Slackware box to the version from OpenBSD 6.2. Sadly they changed how tiling works. Now there isn't a way to tile two windows differently than splitting the screen in exactly two halves. Additionally they changed pretty much every keyword in the config file.  :-(
The innumerable woes of the computer nerd...
Speaking of computer nerds, do you still use Scuttlebutt?
@Andrew Manning I lost the harddrive of one machine and lost my private key. That's why I had to set up a new identity. I only installed it on my new machine recently. It still feels very clunky and power hungry.
I'm trying out the #Lumina desktop on #Slackware.... Looks ok-ish but I don't think I want to go through the whole configuration until it looks and feels like my current #fvwm configuration.
Awesome-WM has done it for me for a long time now.
With awesome I experienced tiling the first time :-) Later then I switched to spectrwm.
I keep switching. Often I end up using i3. At the moment my project is to use a wm that's included in #Slackware. Right now I'm using a FVWM configuration which is almost behaving like a tiling wm. As a plus FVWM is also the default #OpenBSD wm. (However, I used cwm on my last OpenBSD desktop install...)

#Slackware 14.2 RC2 is out....

Fri Apr 15 20:37:37 UTC 2016
Finally got some fixes we were waiting for in this new kernel.
It's been almost a month since 14.2rc1 so we'll call this Slackware
14.2 release candidate 2. Almost there. Get in any last-minute
bug reports quickly. :-)
Building #ghc on #Slackware in hopes to be able to install #pandoc. We'll see how this works out...
I'm considering installing #Slackware on my Libreboot X200. I don't really use it at the moment because I don't like Trisquel. But I'm too lazy for Free Slack and I'm still a bit reluctant to install any not fully free distro on a Libreboot machine. But then, if I don't use it, it won't help either.
Today I read in the #Slackware log that we'll finally get a proper version of sudo:

ap/sudo-1.8.15-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
       New options: --with-insults --with-all-insults --with-pc-insults.
       Sorry about this, I know it's a bit silly. ;-)
Slackware now sells subscriptions for 14.2. So I was finally able to get one. #Slackware
