Every bug that exists in our tracker as of today, will be resolved in the next 4 weeks.

We're also going to be expanding our hosting soon (I'm actually just waiting on getting paid, which is when I was was going to leave this announcement until..) to accommodate a lot more... :)

Once those 4 weeks are up, and obviously there's an ISO in between that too, we're going to begin work on Solus 2.0. Now obviously, we're going to continue to improve 1.0, make no doubt about that (And we're deliberately keeping the old X.Org to allow for AMD drivers, which are coming this week) - but we're going to start it all very very soon.

2.0 will in some ways be a different beast, but at the same time the same guiding principles. In short, it's an act of refinement.

There are some things that just will not be backported to 1.0, as it won't be technically feasible, but one of the first acts of 2.0 is to dramatically slim the footprint of the core of the operating system.

Some small tidbits, and again, there are more announcements to come...:

 * Solus 2.0 will be completely stateless. And we'll start it out as completely stateless, in that it becomes a developer error to ship anything non-stateless. Whassat mean? Go check out the +Clear Linux Project for Intel Architecture documentation here: https://clearlinux.org/features/stateless

* The binary repository will be split into layers, allowing separate domains of ownership. You'll have the very core repository, which is the very heart of the distribution, and then separate profiles built up on top of this.

* The Core should have an absolutely minimal disk footprint. It is in fact this component which will be managed by our new (not yet published) toolchain-cruft successor. This will allow for hardware-specific optimisations.. which we'll go into at a later date.. :)

* The split will allow a merge-model for an atomic base used in our distribution media. i.e. Core+GNOME+Budgie

* For certain profiles, a fully atomic approach will be taken with separated apps. Right now we're evaluating limba. We feel it's a better fit for the project than the ostree approach. Long story short, these atomic profiles would not be using a package manager at all, so ostree isn't the answer here (There is more news to come in this field, stay tuned.)

* The split will enable SDK/OEM/End User separation. And now I say too much. :)

I could go on, but there are other things that I won't be announcing just yet. Just enough to get your tongues wet, as it were.

You just made a mistake in configuring OpenStack* on your system, and out of frustration ran the following commands on your Linux distro as root : # rm -rf /etc /var # reboot. What do you think would happen? How long would it take you to recover? Without backups?

Ambitious plans. I wish them good luck with it.

I feel like the greatest challenge of our generation isn't going to mars.. it's not energy independence... it's not food shortages... The greatest challenge of our generation is getting a CMS to accurately display a website in a responsive manner that doesn't look like ass. /Sarcasm

I feel like a linux compatible nano-sized usb wifi adapter should be in every laptop linux user's "kit". Because these manufacturers just don't give a hoot.

Everytime I run a new distro and the Wifi drivers decide to tell me to go fuck myself. I slip my handy dandy TP-Link Wifi adapter and do what I need to fix it. 

Its not dual-band - But I know it will work every single time. It's my god send.

This makes me torn - While I don't like the GPL, and I think the pressure GPL Activists place on developers is damn near Religious Fanaticism. Developers who chose the GPL do have that right and their license choice should be respected. On the flip side - People shouldn't be forced to use GPL, and if they feel the need to avoid it they should.

But when you chose to avoid it in a way that is detrimental to the community and it's representation... When you do it in a way that harms people who support you... That could and should be avoided.

So here's an open question. Does GTK accept bug bounties. If so; where? If not is anyone interested in finishing the GtkGlArea implementation for Windows and OSX. I'll provide remote servers for both. As well as pay for the widget.

+Emmanuele Bassi Wasn't trying to report a bug. Last I checked it wasn't feature complete - I thought that was still the case. I'll use Bugzilla if I find one, Thanks!

I've gotten 4 MSI motherboards that have been broken out of the box. In a row. Each motherboard was 400$ a piece. Now I order a shiny new MSI to develop on, and see that it's screen couldn't hold up to simple overnight shipping.

I think I need to scratch MSI off my list forever. Now I get to send back, wait for the charge back, and order from someone else.

HORRIBLE COMPANY! I wouldn't recommend doing business with this company. Their BBB Rating speaks for itself. If that's not enough Street Unit has been banned as a Vendor from some of the best Mazda Forums such as Mazda Speed Forums and Mazda24/7. They've been banned for selling junkyard parts as well as other parts that are flawed from design. When confronted with these issues Cullen the CEO of SURE has stated it's installer error. Essentially telling people "You're holding it wrong."

As I write this it has been 20 minutes I've stood outside the front window to the dealership and I have yet to have been even spoken too. I count 7 employees have looked at me acknowledged me and yet for 20 minutes no one has offered to show me the inside of this car. Time to go to Ford.

Went to the store twice. Once for a stereo install second for window tint. The radio was installed broken and the tint is scratched to hell. Stay away.
