prismatic.wordpress: Windows is an operating system for babies. Ubuntu is a Linux distribution for normal people. Unfortunately, it’s a little difficult to hack when it doesn’t work at all!
The inaugural issue of the Gentoo Monthly Newsletter has been released. In this month's issue: Planet Gentoo roundup, updates on the ATI driver, event announcements and more!
We're not in any way related to the Gentoo Weekly Newsletter (GWN) or as it is known now, the GMN. Although inverting the W to be a more grounded M is a radical step and gives the acronym a much more youthful and dynamic look we don't like it that much. An "O" would have made it look much rounder and mature. Also, adding a small "e" at the end would have made it look much more Web 2.0 and stuff. And who can claim that "GONe" is a bad acronym?
grantgoodyear.org: I spent some time this week talking to the Foundation's lawyers, collecting documents, and sifting through old e-mails. Having the Foundation's charter revoked is exceptionally embarrassing, but not catastrophic. The state of NM has a straightforward procedure for reinstating a revoked charter.
Also: Is Gentoo in crisis?
And: Gentoo kernel project contributors
mpagano.com: Yes, Gentoo has some issues concerning the Gentoo foundation. Yes, we are actively working on straightening out these issues. No, Gentoo is not dying.
LinuxToday blog: Any day now, we should start seeing four more faces on the backs of milk cartons: those of the apparently vanished members of the former Gentoo Foundation who have apparently resigned from the five-member board.
Daniel Robbins: It's pretty clear to me that there is a huge disconnect between Gentoo developers and the rest of the universe - by "universe" I mean Gentoo users, outside Gentoo-based projects, organizations using Gentoo Linux and the Open Source/Free Software community as a whole.
This morning Christina Fullam states that it was decided just before Christmas to cancel the 2007.1 release and roll all the effort into Gentoo 2008.0 since there was little possibility of getting a well-tested 2007.1 release out before 2008. In other posts the status of Gentoo Foundation and the weekly newsletter were discussed.
Daniel Robbins: Several days ago, the Gentoo community discovered the unfortunate news that the Gentoo Foundation's charter has been revoked for several weeks. I have received permission from my employer to return and serve as President of the Gentoo Foundation, renew its charter, and then work in some capacity to help to get Gentoo going in the right direction from a legal, community and technical perspective.
opednews.com: Once upon a time, I wrote a series of articles about the various Linux distributions that exist on the Internet. At that time, I had tried, and condemned a distribution known as Gentoo. While Gentoo remains perhaps the most difficult operating system I have ever installed on a computer, once it gets installed, it works quite nicely.
