[HalloweenII] RedHat and Debian:
Eric S. Raymond has made another memo from Vinod Valloppillil public.
I do not thionk it's as interesting as the first, but it mentions
Debian (and RedHat)
One of the larger "grants" however has been the now
universal "Redhat Package Manager" or RPM which ships
with almost all Linux distributions. RPM creates the
concept of an application manifest which simplifies the
job of installing & removing applications on top of
Redhat's current development project is a new GUI for
Linux call "Gnome". Gnome is a response to latent
concerns with non-GPL versions of the X-windows user
Other Linux distributions seem to be falling by the wayside
of RedHat and Caldera. They include SlackWare, SuSe, and
Debian to name a few. A comprehensive list of
distributions can be found on http://www.linux.org.
Falling by the wayside?
