Freespire Beta 1

The people behind Lindows, and now known as Linspire, have come out with a free community project they have called Freespire. Freespire Beta 1 Build 0.0.69 as they call it is the first operating system with the freedom of choice. Trying it out first hand at Phoronix, it certainly is NOT a GNU/Linux distribution to try if you have any level of computer literacy. It continues to almost be a clone of Linspire, and even bundles its CNR (Click n Run) software in there, as well as bundling proprietary codecs and drivers. For any enthusiast, this is a distribution we would recommend you steer clear of if you have any level of sanity.

Mandriva 2007 Alpha

The last time we had took a look at Mandriva was back in the Mandrake 9.2 days. Anyhow, with the first Alpha release now out for Mandriva 2007 Alpha, we decided to fire up the GNOME candidate to see how it looks these days. Some of the new items in Mandriva 2007 Alpha include X.Org v7.1, Linux 2.6.16.20, GNOME 2.15, and many other open-source software updates. Plenty of new features and changes can be found in this development release.

Fedora Core 6 Preview

It is time yet again where the next Fedora Core installment (this time, Core 6) begins to grab the attention of red-hat-wearing penguins and other GNU/Linux enthusiasts. Yesterday was the inaugural test release of Fedora Core 6, which is targeted at die-hard Fedorians, and any other users wishing to get a glimpse at what Fedora Core 6 will hold in store. Of course, Fedora Core 6 Test 1 is not a stable release for use with production machines, so proceed at your own risk. We have been experimenting with Fedora Core 6 Test 1 for about 24 hours now, and have a few thoughts to share. Fedora Core 4 Stentz shaped up to be a competitive release, and Fedora Core 5 Bordeaux continues to be one of the best Linux distributions to date, so how will Fedora Core 6 fare in this competitive open-source world?

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS Dapper Drake

Ubuntu, one of the most widely known desktop Linux distributions -- thanks in part to it being Mark Shuttleworth's creation -- is quickly approaching the version 6.06 Dapper Drake release. After a delay and other headaches, the release candidate for Ubuntu Dapper Drake had shipped last night. This Ubuntu 6.06 release scheduled for a final version coming out on June 1, is gearing up to be one of the best desktop Linux distributions for personal and enterprise use to date. The Ubuntu Desktop LiveCD has also matured quite nicely into one of the best for live general usage.
