PCLOS 2007.1 Soon, Followed by PCLOS 2008

Filed under
PCLOS

Good news to Linux Desktop Users! Tex and Ripper Gang will be offer PCLinuxOS 2007.1 soon followed by PCLinuxOS 2008. Now no more downloading of more than 400MB software after installing PCLinuxOS 2007.

PCLinuxOS 2007.1 will sport 2.6.24 kernel and latest stable packages from the repository. This release will have more drivers for the latest notebooks and desktops. The name "2007.1" does not seem fitting in the year "2008," but it is good as an update to 2007 release, and there will be totally new 2008 version with much makeover and features.

re: PCLOS 2007.1

So it that the standard "soon" used by most humans, or is that the Duke Nukem Forever "soon" that they've been spouting for almost two years or so?

That would be the "There

That would be the "There shall be no wine before it's time" soon.

Which is fine.

Bad Analogy

Bad analogies are like a leaky screwdriver.

Wine has a very refined (or should that be defined) time line, and that definitely doesn't not describe PCLinuxOS 2007 and it's respin rumours.

ah, that'll be the two years discounting pclos 2007 or are some of us using a different calendar? I'm sure it is only 2008 now..... Seems you are on the dukenukem standard, hmmm?
Pclos 2007 was a big leap forward from .93a and the standard involved was worth the wait.
Using minime just now and it is different from the standard 2007. I'm prepared to wait.

Croatian policy encourages open source adoption

Earlier this year, Croatian political party Sustainable Development of Croatia (ORaH) published a new policy that encourages the government to pursue open source solutions, addresses the dangers of vendor lock-in, and insists on open document standards. Best of all, they did it the open source way. Read more

Is Office 365 cheaper than OpenOffice and open source?

Indeed, Microsoft's marketing team published a press release recently saying Office 365 is about 80% cheaper compared to the open source office suite, OpenOffice - with the figures stemming from reports in Italy and the City Council of Pesaro. The Redmond giant claims that to roll out Open Office, Pesaro incurred a one off cost of about €300,000 and had lots of problems with document formatting. But equally how would you convince a public sector organisation to migrate to your cloud services instead of using 'expensive' open source software? The obvious way would be to present a case study from a similar organisation together with a well written report commissioned to an "independent" consultancy firm. At this point your future customer has all the data and justifications required to sign on the dotted line. And some journalists are now presenting this case as fact of Microsoft Office 365 being 80% more economical than open source alternatives. I would argue that this is an isolated case and the PR efforts by big technology vendors, like many other methods, are being used to trick private and public organisations into signing contracts based on data or claims that may be not completely true.
