PCLinuxOS Updated - Almost Overlooked

Filed under
PCLOS

Somehow, I had managed to overlook the release of a new base image for PCLinuxOS. It might have been the recent very bad news for the developers and contributors, or it might have been my own inattentiveness. But whatever the reason, I don't recall seeing anything about it either on the PCLinuxOS web page or on Distrowatch. So, I have done some catching up this weekend.

FIrst, the KDE or LXDE versions can be downloaded from the PCLinuxOS mirrors. The ISO images are compatible with the unetbootin utility, so they can easily be converted to LiveUSB sticks. From that point, installation is smooth and easy.

Over the weekend I have installed this new release on everything around here, from my new Samsung P580 laptop (on my desk) to my trusty HP 2133 Mini-Note. Everything works just fine. Here are a few notes:

  • The Future of Marketing Technology Is Headed for an Open-Source Revolution
  • Edging Closer – ODS Sydney
    Despite the fact that OpenStack’s mission statement has not fundamentally changed since the inception of the project in 2010, we have found many different interpretations of the technology through the years. One of them was that OpenStack would be an all-inclusive anything-as-a-service, in a striking parallel to the many different definitions the “cloud” assumed at the time. At the OpenStack Developer Summit in Sydney, we found a project that is returning to its roots: scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service. It turns out, that resonates well with its user base.

  • Short Delay with WordPress 4.9
    You may have heard WordPress 4.9 is out. While this seems a good improvement over 4.8, it has a new editor that uses codemirror.  So what’s the problem? Well, inside codemirror is jshint and this has that idiotic no evil license. I think this was added in by WordPress, not codemirror itself. So basically WordPress 4.9 has a file, or actually a tiny part of a file that is non-free.  I’ll now have to delay the update of WordPress to hack that piece out, which probably means removing the javascript linter. Not ideal but that’s the way things go.
