Kicking Korora, Tumbleweed Report, OS X Over Linux
Today in Linux news Stack Overflow published the results of their latest developer survey finding Mac OS X is more popular than Windows or Linux. Elsewhere, OpenSource.com ran an introduction to the Korora Linux distribution and Microsoft's patent bulldog is outta there. Dim* has this week's Tumbleweed review and Agam Shah looked at Dell's Linux strategy.
D Ruth Bavousett today said, "If you need an easy-to-learn, easy-to-install operating system for a not-too-technical user, an artist, or even a developer who wants to get stuff done, take a look at Korora." Everything just went swimmingly well for Bavousett during her test drive and her only complaint was that Wine is not installed by default. "So you're not going to run Windows apps in a Korora install without some work." I'm not even sure what to say to that.
Dominique Leuenberger posted his overview of Tumblweed changes this week today saying, "Week 11 has been a busy one behind the curtain, a lot, and I mean a lot, was merged into this snapshot." These include Linux 4.5, KDE Frameworks 5.20, Firefox 45, Python 3.5.1, and CMake 3.5. GNOME 3.2.0 is expected to hit Tumbleweed shortly after its official release next week, so we look forward to hearing how that turns out.
