Interviews

I am certainly no expert when it comes to creating, configuring and managing a multimedia studio, but I do know that the hardware needed is very expensive and I also know that the software required to record, edit, etc. takes up a comparably large portion of one's budget.

Manjaro Works To Make Calamares A Distribution-Independent Installer

The Arch-based Manjaro crew has been developing Calamares, an open-source installation framework they hope will basically lead to being a universal Linux distribution installer. The Manjaro camp has been developing Calamares as a distribution installer framework they'll be using for Manjaro 0.9+ and they also hope other Linux distributions will adopt it so it can become somewhat of a universal Linux installer so each distribution camp no longer keeps needing to write their own installer.
