Distrowatch Weekly (4-2-2007)
It is always a pleasure to report that a project has gone out of its way to complement its distribution with additional material. Last week, Foresight Linux, an rPath-based desktop distribution with focus on the latest GNOME technologies, announced the launch of its new monthly newsletter: “The first Foresight Linux Newsletter has been released! The current edition reports about what’s happening with Foresight Linux, including information on the latest release, security updates, tips and tricks, what’s in development, and Foresight in the press.” Glancing through the first issue, this has to be one of the best distribution-specific newsletters available anywhere. Complete with a “Letter from the Editor”, a tip for ATI graphics card users, introduction to the Banshee music manager, the newsletter is well worth a read even if you are not a Foresight Linux user.
Thanks for the kind words, and now the bar has been set for future issues.
In other news, I’ve also updated the RSS feed for the Foresight Newsletter, you can subscribe using a feed I created in Feedburner. Just pop this in to your favorite RSS reader to subscribe: http://feeds.feedburner.com/foresightnewsletter (Just a bit easier than the other RSS feed, and a bit shorter).
