Going Linux 291 · Year End Review
Our assessment of the year that was 2015 concludes that it was more of an evolutionary year than a revolutionary year. We look at our own community, a number of stand out distributions, and some factors that have made a difference. We also take a moment to acknowledge the passing of Debian founder Ian Murdock.
