News came across the wire today about a new Ubuntu Launchpad feature that allows users to track bug and feature progress with a graphical at-a-glance layout. Color-coding and placement aid the ease-of-use aspects of this online tool. While the actual tool isn't new, regular user access was. There's just one problem.

LeanKit Kanban is an online service that allows projects and businesses to track work flow and progress visually. It has lots of benefits to the diligent and smart user. Those users can eliminate bottlenecks, time and money wasters, and even spot who isn't pulling their weight. Ubuntu uses it mainly to make sure high priority features and bugs are finished and cleared out adequately in an acceptable amount of time and to limit the actual number in-progress features to a manageable level.

Initial impressions of PCLinuxOS 2014.08

I spend more time looking at the family trees of Linux distributions than I do looking at my own family tree. I find it interesting to see how distributions grow from their parent distribution, either acting as an extra layer of features which regularly re-bases itself or as a separate fork. New distributions usually tend to remain similar in most ways to their parent distro, using the same package manager and maintaining similar philosophies. When I look at the family trees of Linux distributions one project stands out more than others: PCLinuxOS. Read more
