LXer: DistroWatch Weekly: Mandriva returns to its roots, VectorLinux 5.8, openSUSE vs SLED

Published at LXer:

Welcome to this year's 41st issue of DistroWatch Weekly! With the release of Mandriva Linux 2007 last week it would seem that the once highly popular desktop Linux distribution has finally closed a shaky chapter behind itself and decided to return to what it does best - proudly produce a great desktop Linux system for the world. This issue of DistroWatch Weekly focuses on Mandriva Linux, its recent past and new products. But Mandriva 2007 wasn't the only major distribution release last week; the fans of Slackware Linux also had a reason to celebrate as version 11.0 of the world's oldest surviving Linux distribution finally hit the download mirrors, promptly followed by a number of Slackware derivatives for all kinds of purposes and processor architectures. Also in this issue: we'll take a quick look at the new VectorLinux 5.8, summarise the week in the troubled world of Debian GNU/Linux, and point our readers to a good comparison between openSUSE and SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop. Happy reading!
