Found another site running a ‘what’s your favourite distribution’ poll – ReviewLinux. You know what to do!
We got 2008 (mostly) finalized today. Well, tomorrow morning, Paris time. Lots of very tired people on the internal IRC channel juggling final-final-final ISO generation, torrent organization, and watching France beat New Zealand in the rugby World Cup quarter finals. The Powerpack and Free editions are done, and just One needs finishing up. The early seeders are now getting access to the torrents, so we’ll be able to do the public release early next week.
I’m really looking forward to the next few weeks – 2008 is shaping up to be a really killer release, and we have some really nice news about the Club changes to go with it. The reduction in the range of products for 2008 is also a great positive thing, and the effective reduction in prices that comes along with it. I’m hoping we’ll be able to make some significant advances in mind- and market-share with this release, it certainly deserves it! It’ll be an interesting ride for sure.
