Wait a minute ... don't you mean Slackware Commodore 64?

Just kidding.

Interesting news though.  I wonder what this will mean for the various unofficial Slack 64 projects?  And what will it mean for VL (including VL64)?

I'm curious.

official and synchroneous 64 build
does that mean that vector 64 will finally be out of beta?

Just a note there are no 32 bit binaries, which means if it is not a 64 bit app
it will not compile.

Right now on my 64-bit box only think that needs 32bit libraries is WINE. And as I heard that hurdle will be eliminated in wine64
