Ubuntu

With Qt5 updates coming just every six months and Ubuntu 14.10 coming out in October, it's fairly expected that Qt 5.3 will be part of Ubuntu 14.10 and it's now been mostly confirmed via the ubuntu-devel list.

Filed under

A survey of OpenStack users, done by members of the OpenStack Foundation has found that Ubuntu is by far the most widely used operating system with OpenStack, not Red Hat Enterprise Linux or CentOS (which is in second place).
