Interesting, given the recent "Gnome kills KDE" discussion on this board, that the annual LinuxQuestions Members Choice Award voting in mid-February was heavily in favor of KDE, with XFCE a strong second, Gnome Shell a very distant 3rd place, and Unity gaining a tiny 7th place share.
The openSUSE Election Officials is pleased to announce the 5th openSUSE Board elected by openSUSE community.
The new board members are Pascal Bleser, Will Stephenson and Andrew Wafaa.
We would like to congratulate all Board Members and wish them all the best. We would also like to thank all candidates for their time to run for openSUSE board.
Reading the wiki, I got the impression that AUR packages with more
than 10 votes would be considered worthy enough to move to the
Community repo. I understand that the ones with thousands of votes
haven't moved due to licence type issues or binary requirements (e.g.
spotify, minecraft, teamviewer, acrobat reader)...
Distrowatch will review Xubuntu:"Last week we mentioned our intention to review Ubuntu's main edition
along with one community edition and opened the selection of which
community distribution would be reviewed to a vote. In total, 70 people
e-mailed in votes and nearly half the entries (after duplicate votes by
people spamming the system were removed) were for Xubuntu.
All of the votes are in on the simplified ballot to choose the default init system for the Debian "jessie" release (on Linux). The Condorcet process left systemd and upstart tied with four votes each; committee chair Bdale Garbee has now used his casting vote in favor of systemd.
