Preview: Pardus 2009.2 Release Candidate

Filed under
Linux

The release of Linux Pardus 2009.2 is near so I wanted to give the Beta a run and see what's new before I actually get my hands on the final release a few days/weeks from now.

Let me start by saying that the Pardus installation is BY FAR the best I have seen in any Linux distro, probably even better than that of some OS you have to pay quite some money for. From the very first screen, it feels pleasant, interesting, informative and thoroughly well put together.

THE PARDUS DESKTOP

After booting up our fresh Pardus installation, we continue to get tasty and beatiful splash and login screens. The KDE implementation is tightly integrated with the Pardus branding, which is apparent throughout the boot up and shutdown processes. This results in a nice solid and professional feel to the whole experience.

Rest Here




Gonna try it

I've always heard good thing about Pardus so I think I will fire it up in Virtualbox and give it a look and see.

CoreOS Gives Up Control of Non-Docker Linux Container Standard

Taking a major step forward in its quest to drive a Linux container standard that’s not created and controlled by Docker or any other company, CoreOS spun off management of its App Container project into a stand-alone foundation. Google, VMware, Red Hat, and Apcera have announced support for the standard. Becoming a more formalized open source project, the App Container (appc) community now has a governance policy and has added a trio of top software engineers that work on infrastructure at Google, Twitter, and Red Hat as “community maintainers.” Read more
