Ubuntu is not Linux - pass it on!

Ubuntu

OK, I've lost it.

Now hear this: could everybody PLEASE stop referring to Ubuntu as a Linux distro?

I'm sorry. The Windows people flocking to Ubuntu is getting like... how shall I explain... like Columbus visiting the New World and not only did he go back calling the natives the wrong name, but also thinking that America is only three miles wide and covered with sand because that's how far he got.

Ubuntu is a fork. It has less in common with the rest of Linux by now than BSD does.

Full Story.

Fedora: The Latest

  • New "remi-php71" repository
  • PHP on the road to the 7.1.0 release
  • First round of Fedora 24 Updated Lives now available. (torrents expected later this week)
    As noted by my colleague on his blog the first round of F24 Updated Lives are now available and carry the date 20160720, Also as mentioned last week on his blog F23 Respins are not going to be actively made, however we and the rest of the volunteer team will field off-off requests as time and resources permit. We are considering a new/second tracker for the Updated Spins but as of today there are only .ISO files available at https://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/live-respins [shortlink] F24 Live-Respins . The F24 respins carry the 4.6.4-200 Kernel and roughly ~500M of updates since the Gold ISOs were released just 5 weeks ago. (some ISOs have more updates, some less)
