Kongoni Nietzsche released

Filed under
Linux

In February this year a group of South African developers announced a new Linux distro project Kongoni. While there is a strong BSD-Unix influence, the underlying code is based on Slackware and the makers are promising to keep the distribution free of proprietary software.

A.J. Venter, lead developer of the Kongoni GNU/Linux team, today announced that Kongoni version 1.12.2, codenamed Nietzsche, has been officially released. “This marks the first official and stable release of the Kongoni GNU/Linux distribution after several development releases,” says Venter.

According to Venter the most significant Kongoni feature is its source base software installation system, known as a ports tree, a feature that originated in the BSD-Unix world and remains a popular power-users tool on present day BSD-Unixes, Apple(tm)'s MacOS(R) and source based GNU/Linux distributions.
