Slackware Linux is moving to eudev

Some big news was revealed through the Slackware Current (pre-release) changelog today as the switch from udev to eudev was finally announced. And this is a big deal because? udev, which is a device manager for the Linux kernel was absorbed into systemd back in 2012 with a notion of fully supporting systems not running systemd. As a response to the merging of udev into systemd, the Gentoo eudev project (an udev fork) officially launched a few months later.
