well so this last day of december marks the end of 2007.
so how about a roundup
on GNU / linux front
i think a lot is already covered in plugged.in
besides few morethings that needs attention are
release of Debian GNU / Linux 4.0
this release is the most waited release of the series coz it featured the firs t of its kind GUI installer which was running not on XORG but on framebuffer hence reducing the ram usage to bare 32MB’s as compared to min 128-256 of today’s distro’s
Debian made a point in the start to keep its o.s for lowest config as well as highest config,
still its apt-get system is best (yum tries to emulate it but is not that good when it comes to application base)
WE saw a lot of changes on indian O.S develoment front also with indian education centers like CDAC entered the O.S. market with the launch of B.O.S.S. (Bharat operating system solution). a custom debian distro, specially designed for indian people.
on web front a lot has changed
a lot of acquesition’s from search gaint google,
and then hotmail fame sabeer batia comming back in social networking bussiness with apnacircle, which does started out good with few prizes to offer but as offers’ gone so is the public, also his original charm was missing here and a lot of content seemed copied from either facebook or linkedin or orkut.
paypal started its virtual credit cardscheme corrently avialable t us only, but will expend soon.
linkedin added photo features and had some problems with its gmail contact setting (already covered on this blog)
