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!

YEAR of the PENGUIN: A Linux mobile in 2015?

It's nearly impossible to sum up an entire year of developments in something as large and nebulous as the world of desktop Linux, especially in a year like this one which has seen some the best releases that projects like Mint, Fedora and openSUSE have put out to date. At the same time the distro that's closest to being a household name, Ubuntu, has been nearly silent since 14.04 arrived in April. To paraphrase author Charles Dickens, the past year of Linux releases has been both the best of times and the worst of times. At the very moment that Linux desktops seem to be reaching new levels of sophistication, polish and "just works" ease-of-use, the entire future of the desktop computer (by which I also mean laptop) feels in doubt.
