ArcoLinux Eases the Way for the Arch-Curious User – TechNewsWorld

ArcoLinux (also the subject of this website) is a big change for the better for anyone switching from other Linux lineage to the Arch Linux infrastructure. ArcoLinux, based in Belgium, previously was known as “ArchMerge Linux.” It is a rolling update distribution based on Arch Linux, but it offers an unusual learning path to make assimilating into the Arch architecture a more pleasant experience. ArcoLinux is a continuation — albeit taking a slightly different direction — of ArchMerge Linux and its family line. ArchMerge Linux was a spinoff of another breakaway distro, ArchLabs Linux. ArchMerge’s development team split with the…

How AlmaLinux stays Red Hat Enterprise Linux compatible without Red Hat code – ZDNet

What does that mean? AlmaLinux is still in the RHEL clone business: "We will continue to aim to produce an enterprise-grade, long-term distribution of Linux that is aligned and ABI compatible with RHEL in response to our community's needs, to the extent it is possible to do, such that software that runs on RHEL will run the same on AlmaLinux." That's easy enough to say, but how do you do it? AlmaLinux explained it will use the CentOS Stream source code that Red Hat continues to offer to all and sundry. This is also the codebase Red Hat uses to create…

SparkyLinux harbors a flamboyant array of desktops – The Register

SparkyLinux is a lightweight distro based on Debian, but it offers some choices that few if any others do. This year's first new version of SparkyLinux has two development streams: a rolling-release version 8, based on Debian "Trixie," release 2024.01 of which just landed. There's also a stable-release version: SparkyLinux 7 is based on Debian 12 "Bookworm," and version 7.2 came out last month. It's nearly a decade since The Reg took a quick look at SparkyLinux. It was only a few years old then, and it's matured significantly. Aside from the two release streams and several special editions, it…

NixOS Linux Lets You Configure Your OS Before Installing – Linux.com

I’ve been using Linux for a very long time. Over the years, I’ve been incredibly happy with how the open source landscape has evolved. One particular area that has come quite a long way is the installation of various distributions. Once upon a time, installing Linux was a task best left to those who had considerable tech skills. Now, if you can install an app, you can install Linux. It’s that simple. And that, my friends, is a very good thing—especially when it comes to drawing in new users. The fact that you can install the entire Linux operating system…

Mageia Linux Is a Modern Throwback to the Underdog Days – Linux.com

I’ve been using Linux long enough to remember Linux Mandrake. I recall, at one of my first-ever Linux conventions, hanging out with the MandrakeSoft crew and being starstruck to think that they were creating a Linux distribution that was sure to bring about world domination for the open source platform. Well, that didn’t happen. In fact, Linux Mandrake didn’t even stand the test of time. It was renamed Mandriva and rebranded. Mandriva retained popularity but eventually came to a halt in 2011. The company disbanded, sending all those star developers to other projects. Of course, rising from the ashes of…

AntiX Linux: Not Pretty but Highly Functional – LinuxInsider

The antiX distro offers a solid operating system that many other Linux communities fail to deliver. It is unassuming but reliable and focuses on performance rather than prettiness. That last element goes a long way to giving users distraction-free computing power. That does not mean antiX is not visually appealing. This distro has a no-nonsense appearance. Instead of lighting up the background and displaying decorative themes, it provides a plain, mostly dark view that lets you concentrate on the computing tasks at hand. Within this bland screen setting is an array of outstanding Linux applications and computing tools. Another great…

Hands-On: openSUSE Linux on the Raspberry Pi 4 – ZDNet

In previous posts of this series about Linux on the Raspberry Pi 4, I have written about Ubuntu, Manjaro and of course the Raspberry Pi OS. This time I'm going to look at openSUSE, which has two variants – the more stable LEAP, and the more leading-edge Tumbleweed. I will be giving them both a try. Fair warning: openSUSE is one of my favorite Linux distributions, and it is the one that boots by default on my desktop system and all of my laptops, so I might be a bit biased. On the other hand, I have tried openSUSE before, on…
