The DistroWatch Weekly
for April 12, 2010 is out. "The constantly evolving development branches of major distributions are a double-edge sword: one one hand, they offer the very latest applications and technologies, but on the other, they tend to break in the most inopportune moments. The sidux project, which aims to stabilise Debian "sid" and release it as a well-tested, yet cutting-edge distro, could be a great compromise between the typical geek's two conflicting desires. Read on for our first-look review of sidux 2009-04 and a brief interview with the distribution's lead developers. In the news section, the Arch Linux release engineering team updates the ISO images release process, Gentoo announces the launch of a new cooperative Wiki project, TuxRadar presents a comprehensive group test of today's most prominent lightweight distributions, and North Korea is rumoured to have developed its own Linux-based operating system. Also in this issue, news about an interesting multi-boot live DVD containing 11 mini-distributions and a brief look at some of today's gaming options on Linux. Happy reading!
