Last couple of days have been very busy, but somehow I managed to find time to upgrade the Durham server to Slackware 9.1, with Kernel 2.6.1! The speed improvements were instantly noticable and everything feels a lot faster, especially X. It’s great to see Linux continuing to get better and better at a fairly rapid rate – less than a year ago I wouldn’t even have considered using it on my desktop full time but now I wouldn’t be without it.
