[News] Package Dependency Resolution Done with Nix

Hash: SHA1

Nix fixes dependency hell on all Linux distributions

,----[ Quote ]
| A next-generation package manager called Nix provides a simple 
| distribution-independent method for deploying a binary or source package on 
| different flavours of Linux, including Ubuntu, Debian, SUSE, Fedora, and Red 
| Hat. Even better, Nix does not interfere with existing package managers. 
| Unlike existing package managers, Nix allows different versions of software 
| to live side by side, and permits sane rollbacks of software upgrades. Nix is 
| a useful system administration tool for heterogeneous environments and 
| developers who write software supported on different libraries, compilers, or 
| interpreters.        



Vista tests leave us all in the dark

| The VoleWare version is clunky, it requires you to download .net, but it
| does tell you which types of software will not work under Vista at the
| moment too. In my case Nero 7 Premium Nero will have to be uninstalled as
| well as a little thing called Sun J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6.
| However, Vole says I will have no problem with any of my hardware and I
| will be able to install Vista's premium packs just as soon as I have
| mortgaged the house and sold the wife and the cat into slavery to
| afford it.
| The question is, which one is right? It seems that ATi want me to dump
| my Nvidia card and Microsoft wants me to abandon Java. We wonder what
| they are really trying to say?

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
