Welcome to this year's twentythird issue of DPN, the newsletter for the Debian community. Topics covered in this issue include:
Welcome to this year's 48th issue of DistroWatch Weekly! With the many high-profile efforts to bring Linux to desktop computers, it's easy to forget that Linux has been dominating other certain areas of computing, such as servers, for many years. Yet, server-oriented Linux distributions are relatively rare. The Slackware-based Superb Mini Server is one notable exception.
pensivepenguin.com: When it comes to versatility, I think Linux wins hands down. Today I want to point out three examples of Linux versatility all having had new releases in the past few days.
ostatic.com: Cinnarch is a new project coupling Linux Mint's Cinnamon desktop with the popular Arch Linux. Like Arch, it's technically a rolling release distribution, but with periodic snapshot releases.

h-online.com: Linux 3.7 can use signatures to verify the integrity of kernel modules, while the new integrity appraisal extension helps to detect malicious software from a third party. The new kernel loads firmware files without udev and includes important container improvements.

techradar.com: As we sit in front of the latest version of Ubuntu, Fedora or SUSE, revelling in the glorious animated desktops, taking pleasure in the ease-of-use the GUI grants and enjoying the fact that most of our hardware works out of the box, do we ever wonder how on Earth our favourite operating system got to this point?
