Recently, we had the User-Mode Linux suite out of Debian, which included user-mode-linux, user-mode-linux-doc and uml-utilities package. We are happy that we were able to bring it back into the archvie quick, and hope to maintain it active.
For many who may not know about UML, here's a discription from its website:
We just pushed VirtualBox 5.0.0 into Debian Experimental. It should land up on your mirrors very soon.
Since this is a major release, we are looking for some testing and feedback. If you use VBox, or have your business depend on it, please give it a test. For details about what is new in 5.x, please check out the release announcement
One of the great things about Debian is the wide range of kernels it supports can run. This gives the user the flexibility to not spend time on the common userland stuff. For example, most apps, package management and system admin tasks are common across all Debian platforms.
These platforms may not be optimal at par to Linux, but still, choice is good.
Lately, for my day job (to be more efficient for the time I spent), I am required to use Windows, back again. :-)
It is great to be back. By back, I mean using Windows for some of the workflows. All these years, I've been using Linux based tools (Debian, Kontact | IceDove, Konq | Chromium | IceWeasel etc) to get my job done. It is great to try back Windows for some of the workflows.
