Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "The Ubuntu Technical Board has made two technical decisions of which we would like to inform the Ubuntu community. Both of these decisions concern the upcoming 7.04 release of Ubuntu, scheduled for mid-April." Ubuntu 7.04 will not activate binary video drivers by default, essentially meaning nothing will change from the previous releases. The second change is a major blow to the PowerPC architecture and thus owners of Apple PPC hardware: "The PowerPC edition of Ubuntu will be reclassified as unofficial. The PowerPC software itself and supporting infrastructure will continue to be available, and supported by a community team." Translation: Ubuntu PPC can shake hands with the dodo.

RE[3]: PPC distro

Member since:

Fedora is currently split into Core and Extras, for release 7 we are merging those two repos and giving more people access to the Core packages which were previously maintained in the open but by pure Red Hat employees. This is good stuff, it means a complete review of all the SPEC files to ensure they live up to the strict quality rules for Extras (we need help to finish this, people who know how to read spec files and can learn the Extras guidelines please please help out, we'd hug you ever so much).

It's a move for more openness for the contributors and a better product for the end users.
