Good (Linux) Things on the Horizon
We seem to be in a particularly good period for Linux at the moment. We've recently gotten the Mandriva 2009.0 and Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex releases, and both of them seem to be very good. There will be a number of new releases coming in the next few weeks, as well:
- Fedora 10 (Cambridge) is due next week, on November 25th. I have been running the Preview Release for several weeks, and it installs and works without problem on both of my laptops.
- openSuSE 11.1 is due on December 18th. I installed the latest development version, Beta5, last week, and it works extremely well on both of my laptops. This is a huge improvement, as I was unable to get openSuSE 11.0 to work very well on either one. In fact, it has already become my preferred version on the S2110 (AMD/ATI) laptop.
