No More Ubuntu! Debian is the New Choice For Google’s In-house Linux Distribution

After more than five years with Ubuntu, Google is replacing Goobuntu with gLinux, a Linux distribution based on Debian Testing release.

As MuyLinux reports, gLinux is being built from the source code of the packages and Google introduces its own changes to it. The changes will also be contributed to the upstream.

This ‘news’ is not really new. It was announced in Debconf’17 in August last year. Somehow the story did not get the attention it deserves.

It is, however, a move from a "stable" distro to a more "beta" distro. It is a version between stable and bleeding edge developer. It's probably the same reason why I moved from Linux Mint to Manjaro - I get my upstream updates quite a bit quicker.
