Linux's '31 Flavors of Fun' Project: 19 Distros and Counting
Fans of Linux may recall the “31 Flavors of Fun” project I wrote about last month through which ambitious developer Todd Robinson planned to “create, and release, a complete desktop operating system each and every day for the period of 31 days” over the course of August.
The goal of the project, as I noted back then, is to “demonstrate the huge advantages of using open source (shared knowledge) solutions in real-world situations,” in the words of the 31 Flavors site.
I couldn't resist checking back this past weekend to see what had been done so far.
I wasn't disappointed. As of this writing on Monday Aug. 20, there are now 19 new Linux distributions listed in the “releases” page on the site, and among them are some pretty compelling examples.
Ready for a quick look? Here are some of the highlights.
