Mini-interview with ROSA

Filed under

Interviews

Some time ago, I wrote an article "How Fresh is the Dew?" That article was about the first release of the Linux distribution named ROSA. In Russian, the word "rosa" means dew, so that was playing with words that time.

I am not sure if the developers of the distribution read my article or not, but the latest release of ROSA, announced on the 19th of December 2012, got the name ROSA Desktop.Fresh 2012. You can read the official press release yourself. However, after reading it I decided to ask some clarification questions of Konstantin Kochereshkin, the PR-manager of ROSA Labs.

I think the answers could be interesting for you, that's why I have published them on my blog.

DarkDuck: Is ROSA Desktop.Fresh 2012 a new version of ROSA Desktop?

Konstantin Kochereshkin: Yes, this is a new version of ROSA. This version has more rights to claim the ROSA name than all the previous ones taken together.

How to throw a tarball over the wall

It costs a lot of money to open source a mature piece of commercial software, even if all you are doing is "throwing a tarball over the wall." That's why companies abandoning software they no longer care about so rarely make it open source, and those abandoning open source projects rarely move them to new homes that benefit others. If all you have thought about is the eventual outcome, you may be surprised how expensive it is to get there. Read more
