New Linux releases on the way

The next few days and weeks will be one of those interesting phases where a number of new Linux releases emerge over a short period. This gallery provides a brief overview of the ones I've been following:

- openSuSE 12.3
- Linux Mint Debian Edition 201303
- Debian 7.0 (Wheezy)
- Korora 18
- Mageia 3
- Ubuntu 13.04

I will be posting details about each of these when they are released — installation, configuration and contents. For now, here's a very brief look at what's on the way, and how the development cycle has been going.
