Mageia 8 Hits Beta with Plasma 5.19.3, Firefox 78...

  • Mageia 8 Hits Beta with Plasma 5.19.3, Firefox 78, and Linux Kernel 5.7.9

    Mageia 8 beta comes about a month after the release of Mageia 8 alpha and brings with it various updated core components compared to the previous version, which include the Linux 5.7.9 kernel, Mozilla Firefox 78 web browser, LibreOffice 6.4.5 office suite, and KDE Plasma 5.19.3 desktop environment.

    The Mageia 8 beta release is available for download right now from the official website for early adopters. Three live editions are provided with the KDE Plasma, GNOME, and Xfce desktop environments for 64-bit computers, and there’s also a 32-bit ISO image only with the Xfce desktop.

Mageia 8 Beta 1 Linux distro now available with KDE Plasma

  • Mageia 8 Beta 1 Linux distro now available with KDE Plasma, GNOME, and Xfce

    Development of Mageia 8 seems to be progressing nicely, which is good news for fans of the Linux-based operating system. Last month, we shared that the first Alpha of the distribution was available for testing, and now today, the first Beta arrives.

    As with the Alpha, the Beta is available with your choice of three desktop environments -- KDE Plasma, GNOME, and Xfce. All three are available in 64-bit Live ISO images, but the 32-bit variant of the operating system is limited to Xfce only. This makes sense, as 32-bit-only computers in 2020 are quite ancient and under-powered, while Xfce is the most lightweight DE of the bunch.

  • POSIX Compliance Explained: Does It Even Matter In 2020

    Like with the Unix Philosphy, POSIX compliance tends to get simplified far more than it really needs to which sort of makes it seem less important than it really is, so today I thought it would be a good idea to take the time to explain what it is and where it came from and why it was important in the early days of Unix and even now in the days of Linux and various BSD variants.
