Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn

With much interest by the Linux community, yesterday Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn was released onto the Internet. While the final release of Ubuntu 7.04 hasn't changed much since the testing releases that we had covered quite extensively, we have posted some additional screenshots from this extremely popular Linux desktop distribution. Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and Edubuntu were also released yesterday but Ubuntu Studio is currently missing in action.

OLPC XO Test Build (Sugar Interface)

We've heard a lot about the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) project, which aims to provide a $100 laptop for developing nations, and we've heard a bit about its Sugar interface and other technical abilities, but recently we spent the time with QEMU and a test build of the OLPC XO operating system (Fedora based) to see how it really shapes up.

The Visual History of Fedora

With the release of Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn happening in just a matter of days, last month at Phoronix we had presented The Visual History of Ubuntu. In that article we went back and looked at all Ubuntu releases to date to see how it has evolved over time both when it comes to the interface as well as the changes that had made up each release. Today we are doing the same for Fedora as we look back upon its history.

SAM Linux 2007

SAM Linux is a distribution we had never heard of in the past, but with the 2007 edition of SAM coming out this week we couldn't help but to give it a try. SAM Linux is based upon PCLinuxOS and features a LiveCD with the Xfce 4.4 desktop. SAM Linux 2007 does include Beryl/XGL support, WINE, Flash 9, RealPlayer, Java, and much more. It is a clean distribution and looks extremely nice. If you're still trying to find the perfect match, SAM Linux 2007 may be worth trying out
