Solus er stoppet

Solus er stoppet

Ikey Doherty har annonceret at SolusOS er stoppet.
For at ciete Distrowatch:
SolusOS, a beginner-friendly Linux distribution based on Debian's stable branch, closed shop last week. Citing "lack of manpower" to continue with development in an efficient manner, lead developer Ikey Doherty announced the sad news after nine alpha releases of what would have been the project's second stable release. The distribution's website was no longer accessible at the time of writing, but IT World's Jon Gold summarised the point from the announcement in Beginner-friendly Linux distro SolusOS to shut down: "Developer Ikey Doherty announced this week that work on SolusOS, a Debian-based distro aimed at beginning Linux users, would come to a halt. The solo nature of the project eventually became too much for Doherty, he wrote in an official blog post. He is employed full-time as a software engineer at Intel. 'Simply put, there is no longer enough manpower to fulfill the vision,' he said. 'What began as a Debian derivative evolved into an independent distribution, without the large development team required to back such an effort.'" SolusOS thus joins the list of discontinued distributions the number of which currently stands at 413.



Dette underforum vil derfor om kort tid blive nedlagt til fordel for en anden dist :wink:

Jeg snakkede med Ikey om det, faktisk. Og det virker lidt, som om han ser en fordel i at arbejde på selve brugerfladen snarere end en hel distribution - han har også lagt sindssygt meget arbejde i det på det sidste.
Jeg synes også, at denne artikel fra FOSS Force giver lidt indblik - ikke mindst med kommentarerne som baggrund.
