Now the new Slack13 variant to fix things up?

|The new release of Absolute Linux 13.0, a variant of Slackware 13.0, just came out yesterday -- see DistroWatch summary at http://distrowatch.com/?newsid=05663 and Sherman's own http://absolutelinux.org/forum/index.php?topic=421.0
Given the recent concerns about setting Slackware 13.0's wireless support in such pieces as 'Slackware 13 Wireless'-- linked to by the author at LXer via http://lxer.com/module/newswire/view/125438 -- wondering how Absolute 13.0 compares here??
Hopefully, these pieces could give SOME help with wireless on Absolute 13.0 : - The Slackbasics Wireless interfaces section at http://www.slackbasics.org/html/netconfig.html#id3768835 - Slackbook's Configuring your network in Slackware, http://alien.slackbook.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=slackware:ne... - Tourrilhes' wireless device and driver reviews at http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Jean_Tourrilhes/Linux/Linux.W...
Will have to try this out and see how Absolute Linux 13.0 performs on older laptop hardware meeting minimum HW specs compared to a trimmed-down install of Slackware 13.0 with the questionable KDE 4.x. Just using IceWM would seem to trim resources down even further.
