The Search for The Ultimate Linux Distro
Please join us Thursday, March 26th 2009 when NYLUG welcomes back
Ira Hyman, Director of the LinuxLoft.com development team and a long-time
member of the New York Linux Users Group, to speak at our regular monthly
meeting. Ira spoke at our March 2008 and March 2007 meetings, so it's no
coincidence that his latest thoughts will be tapped again this year. If
you attended either of his previous talks on PCLinuxOS or Open Source
Multimedia you will enjoy his insights from a recent deep dive with the
Fedora Linux distribution.
Fedora is an RPM-based, general purpose operating system built on top of
the Linux kernel. Primarily developed by the community-supported Fedora
Project, it is sponsored by Red Hat, Inc. and comprises the core
technology of the commercially supported Red Hat Enterprise Linux (a.k.a.
"RHEL") operating system. Roughly every third version of Fedora forms the
basis of a new version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
* Fedora Core 3 --> Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4
* Fedora Core 6 --> Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
* Fedora 10 / Fedora 11 --> Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6
(planned for release in 2010)
If you have a question, comment or criticism about Linux distributions,
this is the meeting to attend. In addition to Fedora, Ira has installed,
tested and reviewed dozens of distros including various Linux appliances.
In this meeting, Ira will explore the best features from a variety of
Linux distributions and attempt to aggregrate them into the Ultimate Linux
Distro - a business concept and no holds barred discussion about what most
Linux users need, want and are buying today. Imagine fantasy football for
the studious geek. If you know of a great app, plug-in or key feature
that we all would benefit from, come on down and join what will surely be
a vigorous dialogue.
