Welcome to this year's 40th issue of DistroWatch Weekly! The unusually long development of Slackware Linux 11.0 continues with an ever growing changelog and more bug fixes. Will we see the final release this week? As Mandriva prepares to unveil its latest and greatest, some of the company's developers are found questioning the suitability of Linux for the desktop. Also in the news: Fedora quietly releases an unscheduled testing set of CD and DVD images of Fedora Core 6, Debian finds itself in a position of not being able to comply with the Mozilla trademark, and Ubuntu's Mark Shuttleworth talks about Dapper and the future of the project. A quick introduction to Instalinux.com is followed by a statistical titbit from our web logs, before we conclude the issue by awarding the September donation to Inkscape and Cape Linux Users Group. Happy reading!
