Texstar wrote the other day, "I'm starting an upload of PCLinuxOS 0.92 Test 04 iso in a few minutes and it should be available tomorrow. If there are no big glaring showstoppers then I'm going to simply rename the iso to final over the weekend and add the Nvidia and ATI isos as well.

Thanks to everyone who helped so much getting this release prepared and ready to go."

One tester states, "It is nice to be in a position when the only "bug reports" are cosmetics!"

Another writes, "Tested livecd on both boxes, everything A-OK!

Tested install, first configured my printer and changed a few small configurations. Then added user, changed root password, installed lilo to installs hd, turned on logging. Booted up perfectly with all changes intact, printer working, etc.

Seems like a winner on this end, thanks everyone!"

Although a few little bugs reared up, fixes came fast and furious. According to the following, another upload will probably take place.

Found on the mailing list:

* Fix userdrake to automatically add new user to audio and video group

* Really fix usb sound device from getting first sound device on livecd. Works on hd install without issue.

* Fix redo-lilo script to actually re-write lilo from livecd.

Schedule 0.92 beta release final for Monday Nov 21st.

There's still time to test!

Dr. John Snow, a local physician, suspected that contaminated drinking water was the source of the disease. During the investigation, he plotted a density map of cholera cases and interviewed residents in the affected neighborhood to learned about their water use habits. His analysis showed a high number of incidents near a communal water pump. Read more

While Dell is mostly known as a Windows PC manufacturer, the company is also a big proponent of Linux. Its "Developer Edition" models can be configured with Ubuntu, for instance.
