ALT Linux 7.0 Enterprise and Workstation Arrive

Filed under
Linux

ALT Linux has been around for quite some time, yet we rarely hear of it anymore. Some of my first impressions were of a nice desktop system that needed a bit of polish. Later ALT became available in desktop and enterprise editions. After nearly two years, today brought a new ALT Linux release.

Alt Linux hails from Russia and commonly features KDE and other popular desktops. The latest versions announced today ship in MATE and Xfce variants. The two editions are "Centaurus," which is suited for small businesses and home office servers featuring the MATE desktop, and "Simply," designed for workstations and home desktops with Xfce.

Eclipse Luna for Fedora 20

A software collection is simply a set of RPMs whose contents are isolated from the rest of your system such that they do not modify, overwrite or otherwise conflict with anything in the main Fedora repositories. This allows you install multiple versions of a software stack side-by-side, without them interfering with one another. More can be read about this mechanism on the software collections website. The Eclipse Luna software collection lives in a separate yum repository, which must be configured by clicking on this link to install the release package. Read more
