This Week in Linux 102: Inkscape 1.0, Fedora 32, Ubuntu Flavours, Pop!_OS, Red Hat, openSUSE & More

On this episode of This Week in Linux, we have SO MUCH DISTRO NEWS! In fact, we’ve got news from Fedora, PopOS, Red Hat, openSUSE, and a follow up for the Ubuntu 20.04 release. Last week, I said we’re going to give the official Ubuntu Flavours an extra week to discuss their 20.04 releases since there are so many to discuss and that time has come. There are 7 Ubuntu Flavours and all of them have a 20.04 release with some really interesting stuff happening in each one. If that wasn’t enough, Inkscape 1.0 has finally be released after 16 Years of continuous develop so this episode is just jam packed with Linux News. All that and much more on Your Weekly Source for Linux GNews!

  1. When did “Long Term” become a mere 3 years? (This is a rhetorical question.) The rate of change in technology is outpacing my ability to comprehend the changes. Some days I seriously consider quitting my job and getting rid of all my tech - maybe join the Amish.

  2. I know you said rhetorical but Ubuntu Flavours are 3 years because they are not maintained by a company. It is technically possible for flavours to adopt the 5 years that Ubuntu does but it is not often done due to how much extra work that would be.

    I think desktop usage shouldn’t be too long where as servers / enterprise worksttions totally should be longer and they are in most distros including Ubuntu.

  3. Thanks @MichaelTunnell for another very informative episode :slight_smile: I don’t use Ubuntu much, though I do have the main release in a VM. I also have Fedora in a VM but found of late that it didn’t upgrade smoothly from previous version, so will try a fresh install of version 32 some time soon. Will be interesting to see how the Ubuntu upgrade runs too!
