[News] The Role of Community GNU/Linux Distributions

Hash: SHA1

[Ensure Something Exists for Everyone... try making your own version Windows or
Mac OS X]

Community vs. Commercial GNU/Linux Distributions

,----[ Quote ]
| But whatever your decision, remember that all GNU/Linux distributions are not 
| the same. Which of these alternatives you should choose depends very much on 
| what you are prepared to tolerate.  


Good community distribution is coming soon:

MEPIS jumps on 2.6.27

,----[ Quote ]
| Only ten days after the release of Linux 2.6.27, the SimplyMEPIS project has 
| decided to work the new kernel into its next release. The project today used 
| the kernel in both 32- and 64-bit versions of the third beta release of 
| SimplyMEPIS 8.   



Mepis 8: It's a beautiful thing!

| So, in my developing desktop, I am using Mepis 8 beta, KDE 3.5.9, and the
| beautiful Xaphire theme mentioned in my previous post, which satisfies my
| need for a dark glassy classy look.


Second MEPIS 8.0 Beta Uploaded For Testing

,----[ Quote ]
| Warren has uploaded a second 8.0 beta, MEPIS 7.9.80-beta. MEPIS 8.0 offers
| up-to-date user applications delivered on top of a Debian Lenny core.


Simply Mepis 8 is Looking Good

| You should give Linux a try. If you are currently using MS Windows, you
| should download the .iso image, burn it to a CD, stick it in your optical
| drive and reboot the computer. You won’t have to install right away, unless
| you want. This way you can look at Linux and see what it’s all about. There’s
| more information here. Give it a shot and you’ll probably like what you see.


MEPIS Linux 8.0 nears release

,----[ Quote ]
| A new version of MEPIS Linux, one of my favorite KDE-based distributions, is
| nearing final release. Roughly a year after the arrival of version 7.0,
| distribution founder and maintainer Warren Woodford has just issued MEPIS 8.0
| beta 2, based on a Debian Lenny core.
| I last tested MEPIS at version 6.0 two years ago, and found it to be a nearly
| perfect Linux desktop. That version was based on Ubuntu packages, whereas
| version 7.0, which emerged late last year, marked a move back to a Debian
| core.


MEPIS is coming back

| I’m pleased to report that one of my favorite desktop Linux distributions,
| MEPIS, is returning. The beta of the next version, MEPIS 8, is now available.


Simply Mepis Linux and My Office

,----[ Quote ]
| What I’ve described is a sample of tasks I get done using OOo and Linux.
| There’s much more to tell, but it will have to wait for another time. I am no
| expert on Linux, MySQL or OOo, but use them to take care of part of what I do
| in ministry. If you use Linux, you know it to be a safe and solid operating
| system. It’s nice to get my work done and not have to be concerned with all
| the headaches associated with Windows maintenance.
