1+1 = Calculate Linux

Filed under
Linux

Another Monday, another review. This week it’s Calculate Linux 11.3 Gnome Edition! Get ready for another wild and crazy ride into the ever changing landscape known as FLOSS!

Arriving at home page for the Calculate Linux website you get the feel that it’s a straight forward business-like site. There’s nothing flashy about the website, but it’s also extremely informative. There’s release announcements, new package updates, ‘Planet Calculate’ blog/news feed, security advisories and a twitter feed down the one side. The other side has a brief introduction about Calculate Linux, Why another distribution was built when there are so many, different ways of obtaining help, and lastly, a section showing the recent forum posts. The menus are thoroughly populated with every option you could possibly need. One that sticks out was being able to connect directly to IRC from the ‘Community” drop-down menu. There’s no need for a client, it just opens a window where you are a guest in the channel. I was ‘guest-en’ quite a number of times.

CentOS 5.11 Officially Released, Probably the Last One in the Series

As you all know already, CentOS is an Enterprise-class Linux Distribution derived from sources provided by Red Hat. This is the eleventh update for the distribution and probably the last one. It features all the packages from all variants, including Server and Client, and the upstream repositories have been merged into a single one. Red Hat announced less than a month ago the release of their last update for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, 5.11. It stands to reason that CentOS 5.11 will also be the last update in the series. Read more
