openSUSE Tumbling, Fedora Slipping, and Calculating Linux

The big news today is the merger of openSUSE Factory and Tumbleweed. Fedora 21 is delayed again due to numerous blockers. Jack M. Germain looks at Calculate Linux 14 and Bryan Lunduke is back with another desktop review, this week LXDE. There’s a "victory for free software" in the news, but it’s not in Berlin where Microsoft Office is being substituted for OpenOffice. Douglas DeMaio today posted on the openSUSE.org blog that Tumbleweed and Factory will be merged into one rolling release so users can get newer software faster and openSUSE can benefit from more feedback. DeMaio explains, "Factory will remain the name of the development process where openSUSE’s new developments are integrated, with the tested, user-ready rolling release assuming the name Tumbleweed from Nov. 4." Clear as mud? The Q&A says, "The only change is that the published, tested, completed, ready repositories and ISO’s we currently call the ‘Factory rolling release’ will now be called ‘Tumbleweed.’" Anyway, technical details to come. Fedora 21 Beta has been delayed due to several blocker bugs. In last night’s Go/No-Go meeting several issues came to light. Bugs continue with the installer and problems in creating the images blocked the beta release. In tonight’s
