Mini-interview with ROSA

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.
