Why I'm excited for Linux Mint 16, even though I don't like Mint

Filed under
Linux

Every six months, my world gets thrown into a state of pure, blissful chaos.

New, major versions of the big Linux distributions tend to hit every half year - one batch in the spring, another in the fall. As a person for whom the "Linux Enthusiast" moniker certainly applies, I have grown accustomed to this bi-annual state of unrest.

Case in point: Over the next six weeks, we will see big new releases of Ubuntu (13.10), openSUSE (13.1) and Fedora (20).

Do I absolutely need to install each of them? No. Of course not.

Will I? You bet your bottom I will.

KDE and Akademy

  • Akademy Day 4
    For most of the year, KDE—one of the largest free and open software communities in the world—works online by email, IRC, forums and mailing lists. Akademy provides all KDE contributors the opportunity to meet in person to foster social bonds, work on concrete technology issues, consider new ideas, and reinforce the innovative, dynamic culture of KDE. Akademy brings together artists, designers, developers, translators, users, writers, sponsors and many other types of KDE contributors to celebrate the achievements of the past year and help determine the direction for the next year. Hands-on sessions offer the opportunity for intense work bringing those plans to reality. The KDE Community welcomes companies building on KDE technology, and those that are looking for opportunities.
  • KDE Reveals Plasma Mobile
    There are a lot of interesting developments occurring in the field of Linux smartphones right now. With so many different options popping up, fragmentation is a risk, as apps built on one platform fail to migrate to another. KDE's new offering may help to make those apps available to a broader audience.
