Linux releases distros more often than Microsoft delivers "critical" security
patches, which is a frequent occurrence.

CDlinux 0.9.1


[Trixbox] released

,----[ Quote ]
| I just released This is a rollup release we a bunch of bug fixes and 
| the latest version of all our packages. All trixbox users are recommended to 
| upgrade to this release. Especially 2.6.x.x users.  
| This release resolved the problems with the package manager not working and 
| some PSTN cards causing kernel panics when the system is rebooted. There are 
| also a number of small GUI fixes and enhancements. I also added support for 
| some of the new Realtek netwrok chipsets that are not supported by CentOS 5.2

[Arch] 2009.02 ISO Release Update

,----[ Quote ]
| The original archlinux-2009.02-ftp-i686.img USB image was broken, a new image 
| (archlinux-2009.02-2-ftp-i686.img) has been uploaded. We are sorry for any 
| inconvenience this may have caused you.  
| With one image broken, we also had to create new torrents: We now use a 
| single torrent per file again and added more mirrors to the webseeds. All 
| seeders should stop seeding the old torrent and get the new ones.  


Arch Linux 2009.02 Has EXT4 Support

,----[ Quote ]
| Here's another Linux distribution that adopts the EXT4 filesystem, Arch Linux 
| 2009-02, announced last night (February 16th) by Aaron Griffin. Arch Linux is 
| a bleeding-edge independently developed Linux distribution. This is the first 
| release of Arch Linux for 2009 and it brings some of the latest and greatest 
| Linux technologies available today, such as Linux kernel 2.6.28 and support 
| for the evolutionary EXT4 filesystem. The latter was also added in the 
| installer, which means that every Arch Linux user will be able to easily 
| create EXT4 partitions.

,----[ Quote ]
| The DragonFly 2.2 release is here! The HAMMER filesystem is considered 
| production-ready in this release; It was first released in July 2008. The 2.2 
| release represents major stability improvements across the board, new 
| drivers, much better pkgsrc support and integration, and a brand new release 
| infrastructure with multiple target options.    
| Three release options are now available: Our bare-bones CD ISO, a DVD ISO 
| which includes a fully operational X environment, and a bare-bones bootable 
| USB disk-key image (less than 512M).

| their resources behind a single distribution.
