This Week in Linux

Filed under
Linux

Another week has come and gone and much more has happened than what I can cover in my regularly scheduled slots. So, let's have a look at some of the other developments this week in Linux. The Ubuntu family got a new developmental release, Zorin OS continues to get rave reviews, and Bodhi Linux 2.0 was released.

It seems to be big news when Ubuntu releases a developmental version and this week fans got several. Ubuntu 12.10 Alpha 3 shiped with Linux 3.5.0, LibreOffice 3.6.0, and GNOME 3.5.4. Kubuntu features the newly minted ReKonq 1.0 Web browser, and sudo is now owned by new user sudo in all Buntus.
