Another week passed and we are happy to present our fourth preview release of Ellada.
Other new releases: OpenMandriva Lx 3.0 Linux Now Available For Download With New Features
The Maui team is happy to announce the release of Maui 1 “Aurora”.
This is the continuation of the full-desktop version of Netrunner (read about it here).
The biggest underlying change has been rebasing Netrunner on Kubuntu to Maui on KDE neon (Xenial LTS).
That means Maui will now be receiving continous updates and support until the next LTS in 2018.
During that timeframe, we plan to release updated ISO versions every 3-4 months with the latest of Plasma software and other updates.
The Elive Team is proud to announce the release of the beta version 2.7.2
This new version includes:
Spotify works directly on the fly on your Elive system!
Designs: much much improved designs for the icons and theme, see details at continuation
fixes: thunar opens terminology as default terminal, admin mode works back too
Gimp includes a much better and improved default configuration like single window mode or an increased number of undeletes
It appears that SUSE and the OpenStack company Mirantis have teamed up to pull a play from the Oracle playbook. The deal brings full enterprise Linux support to Mirantis’s OpenStack customers which is not limited to SLED but includes full support for RHEL and CentOS. Maybe that plan will work better for them than it did for Oracle.
For those that may be interested in the Clear Linux distribution for improved performance or other innovative functionality, the third "Clear Linux Highlights" newsletter has been published to share more of the recent changes to this Linux distribution out of the Intel Open-Source Technology Center.
Recent changes to Clear Linux include making HTTP/2 the default Internet protocol, both for client and server components packaged by Clear Linux -- just not any web browser default.
Microsoft has backed down on its plan to hustle owners of certain PCs to Windows 10 by crimping support options.
Redmond revealed the plan last January, when it decreed that PCs running 6th-generation Core i5 or Core i7 CPUs and Windows 7 would only get limited security and stability support until mid-2017. By March it backed off a little, extending support for another year and promising critical patches would flow until end of life.
You can no longer dictate to the world what folks will do with the hardware they own.
Here’s some unhelpful back-to-school advice: Don’t buy a laptop. Borrow one, steal one from a family member, buy a piece of junk for 40 bucks on Craigslist. If you can find a way to wait a couple of months before dropping serious coin on a new clamshell, you’ll be glad you did.
Later this fall, Apple’s almost certainly going to release a new MacBook Pro, which is desperately in need of a revamp. And there will be Windows PCs practically falling from the ceiling—maybe even a few made by Microsoft itself. But the real reason to hold off on your purchase is to wait for the new breed of Chromebooks that are on their way.
I hadn't realized until now that it's the Free Software Foundation's first time issuing an annual report since it was formed thirty years ago.
The Free Software Foundation published its first annual report today, which covers their 2015 fiscal year from 1 October 2014 to 30 September 2015.
