No More Fedora and openSUSE
When is Linux Magazine going to put some new Linux DVDs in the magazine? Not more openSUSE and Fedora.
How many copies do you think I need?
We try to cover a range of options with our DVD series. The fact is, though, that we have fairly solid sales information telling us that more readers prefer mainstream distros such as Fedora, openSUSE, and Ubuntu. For this reason, we try to cover the major releases of the most popular Linux alternatives.
We do, however, keep our eye on other up-and-coming alternatives, such as this month's Linux Mint DVD.
Reading through Tech Tools in the latest issue, I found myself constantly thinking, "Wait, is this software open source?" The articles give no clear indication.
Please consider adding some sort of mark to distinguish reviews of proprietary and free software.
While it would be great to see the actual license specified (e.g., Apache, GPL3, Artistic, BSD, or Proprietary), I would be happy with just a small "OS" symbol if the license meets the open source definition.
