Where Will Your Linux Distro Be in Five Years?

Filed under
Linux

No question in my mind. There will be more fall-out similar to the likes of what happened to Fuduntu. Call it a consolidation, if you will.

It gave me pause for thought to realize that the choice one makes for a Distro should be given very special consideration.

For personal use and, particularly, when it comes to the business world, there are some critical questions which need to be answered before making that choice. I have come to realize that just a handful of things are important and that made Fedora 18 the obvious choice. So what attributes should one be looking for in a Distro?

The Best Android Phones Coming In 2017

For phone lovers, the Android space is the place to be. Inside the Android Kingdom things move fast and, for the most part, set the goalposts for the rest of the market. Often, what you find in contemporary Android phones eventually makes its way down to iPhones and what few other rivals remain! QHD panels is one example of this; dual-lens cameras and curved OLED displays are others. 2016 was a decent year for Android releases, with strong handsets from all major players.
