Fedora 19 will catch up GNOME 3.8 with a 4 months release cycle

Filed under
Linux

After the 2 months delay and the 8 months release cycle of Spherical Cow, Fedora now will try to make a “Speedy Gonzales” release inside in just 4 months. This is the shortest release cycle that Fedora ever had from its day one – Nov 2003, Yarrow / GNOME 2.4 / Linux 2.4.19.

Fedora 19 is scheduled [*Draft*] for May 21, when GNOME 3.8 is coming out in Mar 27.

A 4 months Release Schedule

It was a question since the huge delay in Fedora 18, when Fedora 19 would be available. Well, Fedora is coming back to its normal 2 releases a year schedule May/November. To succeed this, Fedora 19 should come out just 4 months after 18.

Android is finally beating Apple in this one key metric

The iPhone is widely considered the "rich man's phone," but Android is finally beating Apple in one key metric — revenue. According to new data from Digi-Capital, for the first time, Android is making more money from apps than iOS is. Android has long beaten Apple in terms of absolute downloads, because it has a far larger install base. Last year, more than 1 billion Android handsets shipped, compared to a (relatively) paltry 192.7 million for the iPhone. But this is largely a vanity metric if it doesn't translate into actual money, and the largest audience in the world won't persuade developers to use your platform if there's no way to monetise it.

Linux Freedom vs. Convenience

One of my favorite websites that illustrate this point is WhyLinuxIsBetter.net. As the page loads, you're immediately presented with clear, easy to understand reasons why Linux is better than proprietary operating systems. Now granted, the website is a bit dated. But the overall message is timeless and positive. What this site does well is show its readers exactly why Linux on the desktop is awesome. From its features to its built-in safety, everything is clearly illustrated and easy to understand. Read more
