Slackware-13.37 vs Slackware-14

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I recently installed slackware-14 and it is working very well. However, on searching for applications in pkgs.org, I find that there are many more applications for slackware-13.37. The install dvd of 13.37 is also larger than that of slackware-14 (approx. 4.2 vs 2.4 gb). Will it be easier to use slackware-13.37 for the sake of availability of applications? Are there any major disadvantages of slackware-13.37 at this time? (HowTos)
