DistroWatch Weekly, Issue 530

Filed under
Linux

Welcome to this year's 42nd issue of DistroWatch Weekly! This past week news feeds in the Linux ecosystem were flooded with reports of Ubuntu, Ubuntu spins and reviews of Ubuntu in its many flavours. This week we bring you early reports of Ubuntu's 13.10 release and some first impressions. Ubuntu is, of course, based on the Debian GNU/Linux distribution and this week we reflect some of Ubuntu's spotlight onto Debian. Lucas Nussbaum, current Debian Project Leader, recently gave an interview to Frostcast and we link to that discussion below.

This week we also feature a review of a Debian-based distribution, Kwheezy. Read on to learn Jesse Smith's views of this young distribution which mixes Debian's stable branch with a full-featured KDE desktop. Also in this edition of DistroWatch Weekly we discuss keeping up with security patches on enterprise-focused Linux distributions, announce the new releases of the past week and look forward to exciting new distribution releases to come. We wish you all a pleasant week and happy reading!

It is early days and there is some old content on the site which is a bit out of date but I plan to make linux.about.com a great resource for everyone. Read more
