With the rise of the Linux era, there are lots of Linux distributions are out there serving different different requirements and purposes. Every Linux distribution comes up with its own unique features and purpose to serve. But still sometimes, it’s depends on the company top management, System Administrator to pick the right Linux distribution for them to work with. Say a requirement can be served by 2 or even more Linux distributions. But the “System Administrator” guy over there are good at dealing with Debian based Linux distribution. So he will definitely go for Debian. I used to work for Disney Interactive (USA) for a long time and there we used to work with CentOS Linux distribution first and then later on we moved to Ubuntu Linux distribution.
Today, May 9, 2016, Chandrakant Singh from AryaLinux was proud to announce the release and immediate availability for download of the AryaLinux 2016.04 GNU/Linux operating system.
It appears that this is the first time we report on a release of the AryaLinux distribution, which is based on the systemd edition of the Linux From Scratch (LFS) and Beyond Linux From Scratch (BLFS) projects.
AryaLinux is a source-based, desktop-oriented operating system built around the highly customizable and light MATE desktop environment, and latest release, AryaLinux 2016.04 ships with several new features and many improvements.
Today we would like to introduce you guys to a brand-new GNU/Linux distribution, which unlike a few others, aims to offer you a one hundred percent free desktop-oriented computer operating system.
Please meet Uruk GNU/Linux, a distro whose main design goal is to be a little different from the rest, as it tries to be based on a low-latency Linux-libre 4.2 kernel, which very few GNU/Linux distributions use, the old-school MATE desktop environment with the modern Plank dock, as well as a carefully selected collection of 100% free software projects.
The Calamares installer framework continues to see more distributions adopt it as their installer, so it's good hearing this weekend that it's finally onto supporting LUKS encryption.
Via the Calamares installer, it's now possible to setup LUKS-based full hard drive encryption. This feature was added to their latest development build.
During the last two weeks, we could publish 5 snapshots, of which 0422 had been pre-announced as being ‘huge’. The other snapshots covered are 0430, 0502, 0503, 0504 and 0505. The gap from 0422 up to 0430 was due to the full rebuild of the distribution based on glibc 2.23.
4MLinux developer Zbigniew Konojacki has informed us about the availability for download and testing of the Beta release of the upcoming 4MLinux 18.0 operating system.
The Core edition of 4MLinux 18.0 has been released on May 8, 2016, powered by the long-term supported Linux 4.4 kernel and using GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 5.3.0 to compile the pre-installed packages, which are available, as usual, only for the 32-bit (i686) hardware architecture.
The Linux Mint project has decided version 18, scheduled for June 2016, will end out-of-the-box installation of multimedia codecs.
The reasoning is straightforward: shipping with codecs involves a lot of work that other mainstream distributions don't bother with, instead leaving users to choose what they want post-install.
The Parsix GNU/Linux devs have just announced the release and immediate availability for download of the second test build of the upcoming Parsix GNU/Linux 8.10 "Erik" operating system.
The development team behind the Waha Linux distribution have announced earlier, May 7, 2016, the general availability of the Waha Linux 8.4 release, dubbed Hijra.
Waha Linux 8.4 "Hijra" is here after approximately eight months since the previous point release of the Debian-based distribution, Waha Linux 8.2, which was announced back in September 2015 based on the software repositories of the Debian GNU/Linux 8.2 (Jessie) operating system.
Parsix GNU/Linux is a live and installation DVD based on Debian. Our goal is to provide a ready to use and easy to install desktop and laptop optimized operating system based on Debian's stable branch and the latest stable release of GNOME desktop environment. Users can easily install extra software packages from Parsix APT repositories. Our annual release cycle consists of two major and four minor versions. We have our own software repositories and build servers to build and provide all the necessary updates and missing features in Debian stable branch.
