The importance of donating to open source projects

Filed under
OSS

As many of you know, I am a big fan of Enlightenment, and no distribution does a better job of combining the wonder of E17 and the ease of Ubuntu than does Bodhi Linux. Recently the developers of Bodhi Linux released version 1.2 which has a number of solid updates, such as:

Linux 3.0.0
Enlightenment built from SVN on 09/06/11
Midori 0.4.0

Bodhi likes to be a bit of a minimalist distribution, so upon installation, it’s up to the user to go through Synaptic and install what you like. It’s a good philosophy which will hand over to the end users ONLY what they want on their desktop. But more than that, Bodhi offers Enlightenment E17 on Ubuntu without having to go through the hassle of trying to compile from SVN or hunting down binaries.

But why Bodhi?

Linux 4.1-rc2

So the -rc2's have lately been pretty small - looking more like late -rc's than early ones. It *used* to be that I couldn't even post the shortlog, because it was just too big. That's not been the case for the last few releases. I think people tend to take a breather after the merge window, because the -rc3's tend to then be a bit bigger again. But it may just also be that I've just gotten much better at saying "the merge window is over, I'm not taking random stragglers", or that people are just getting better at keeping to the merge window. Whatever the reason, the time of huge -rc2's seems to be happily behind us. Read more
