DistroWatch Weekly, Issue 469

Filed under
Linux

Welcome to this year's 33rd issue of DistroWatch Weekly! It has been an interesting week for the open source community, especially in the realm of desktop interfaces. The Common Desktop Environment was released as open source software, Debian is switching its default desktop to Xfce and the GNOME team is planning GNOME OS.

Further, in this issue we introduce a new feature -- a lot goes on in the world of open source operating systems, more than we can cover in this space. With that in mind we hope you will enjoy a new section of the Weekly we are trying called Around The Web which will provide links to more news, more reviews and interesting podcasts.
