So there I am.
I've been telling myself for the last four weeks (I'm always telling myself stuff - frequently wrong - I should give it up) it'll be Ubuntu on the cover disc this month. It's always Ubuntu on the cover disc the month it comes out.
Then issue 165 drops through the letterbox and it's not Ubuntu. They've only gone and put Slackware on the disc!
Thanks Ben. You've made a sad old Git very happy
