Welcome to this year's second issue of DistroWatch Weekly! Many of us take this time of year as an opportunity to gaze back at things we have recently experienced and to look ahead at things to come. This week we are going to do both.
- Bodhi Linux 2.2.0 Review: Better than ever
- Snowlinux 4 "Glacier" Mate Review: Fast, light
- SparkyLinux 2.1 rc Ultra Edition
linuxuser.co.uk: The specs say it’s packed with power, but has CompuLab truly delivered an intense product in such a small package?
dasublogbyprashanth.blogspot: Almost 2 years ago, a bit after its official release, I reviewed Elementary OS 0.1 "Jupiter". There I said that there was a ton of hype surrounding its release, and that I had bought into the hype a little bit.
lifehacker.com: Two years ago, my son Jacob (then 3) and I built his first computer together. I installed Debian on it, but never put a GUI on the thing. It's command-line, and has provided lots of enjoyment off and on over the last couple of years.
linuxinsider.com: Linux Mint 14, released in December and dubbed the "Nadia" version, is loaded with a horde of improvements to all four of its desktop environments. It is not usually necessary to grab every new release to a distro, but Nadia is a significant upgrade to an evolving Linux OS. This one is a keeper.

darkduck.com: The latest release of ROSA, announced on the 19th of December 2012, got the name ROSA Desktop.Fresh 2012. You can read the official press release yourself. However, after reading it I decided to ask some clarification questions.
zdnet.com: Linux leader Red Hat announced an upgrade of its Linux that offers better support for the latest hardware, OpenJDK, security, Samba 3.8 and Microsoft Hyper-V
lkubuntu.wordpress: I have been a loyal ubuntu user for around 5 years, and I have also tried my best to help the community for around 3 years (and still am).
