Gentoo

blog.cryos.net: I am very pleased to announce that KDE 4.1.2 is in the Gentoo official tree and I unmasked it a little earlier today. I think that all the big bugs have been squashed but there may be a few left lurking.

Ubuntu

jldugger.livejournal: A recent cnet article suggests that Ubuntu is eating other distribution's lunch. In particular, one distribution is reported to be falling apart: Gentoo. Gentoo was very popular among my friends at the time I adopted Linux, but from what I've seen, the project fell apart as developers were unable to come to consensus or resolve conflicts.

I keep coming back to Gentoo!

rahulthewall.wordpress: I don’t know why, but somehow after using Gentoo it is impossible for me to use any other Linux Distro. I wanted to try KDE-4.1.1 quickly and I burned Kubuntu Ibex Alpha 6. I could only tolerate it for 45 minutes.

KDE
Gentoo

freehackers.org: On July 29th, KDE 4.1, the first almost usable KDE version since the 3.5 branch, has been released, and since then guess what happened in the gentoo-kde land? Nothing. Rumors are that developers have fought each others and the kde team is just no more.

Filed under
Gentoo

Daniel Robbins: Gentoo seems to be having problems with .”1” releases – 2007.1 was cancelled and now 2008.1 has been cancelled. The Gentoo project has also announced a desire to move to a more “back to basics approach” where they are doing weekly builds of Gentoo stages. Good idea.

The Top 5 Linux Distributions For The Everyday Linux User

Why 5? Why not 10? The more distributions that I list, the more confusion that I will introduce to potentially new users. If I had to recommend 1 it would be Linux Mint but we are all different so I have tried to add a bit of variety. The list includes 2 main stream behemoths, a rolling release distribution, a lightweight distribution and a cool modern distribution. I think that covers most bases. Thankyou for reading. Read more

OpenBSD 6.0 tightens security by losing Linux compatibility

OpenBSD, one of the more prominent variants of the BSD family of Unix-like operating systems, will be released at the beginning of September, according to a note on the official OpenBSD website. Often touted as an alternative to Linux. OpenBSD is known for the lack of proprietary influence on its software and has garnered a reputation for shipping with better default security than other OSes and for being highly vigilant (some might say strident) about the safety of its users. Many software router/firewall projects are based on OpenBSD because of its security-conscious development process. Read more
