DistroWatch Weekly, Issue 314 - August 3, 2009
I am glad that the CentOS team is working through their issues. I have not used that distribution myself, but I have heard that works very well in production environments.
Welcome to this year's 31st issue of DistroWatch Weekly! The most controversial news of the week was the open letter written by several developers of CentOS, one of the distributions on the DistroWatch's top ten list, to the project's co-founder, pleading for the resolution of a number of key issues. This was taken to the public as a way of getting attention after failing to resolve the issues internally. It turned out to be a good solution; by the end of the week all has seemingly returned to normal in the CentOS land. Another piece of news that stirred much interest on the Internet was the Debian announcement about its planned switch to a time-based freeze model. This was often incorrectly misinterpreted as a switch to a time-based release model, but as many Debian developers were quick to point out, nothing has changed in the "released when ready" Debian release strategy. As for our feature article this week, it is a quick look at the "Core" edition of Slax, a minimalist distribution in 50 MB, which can be a surprisingly good rescue and educational tool. Finally, we are pleased to announce that the recipients of the DistroWatch.com June and July 2009 donations are LiVES and Osmo. Happy reading!
