A week ago a new version of an old distribution was quietly released: Guadalinex v10 Community Edition. This new version has many differences compared to its previous versions, but the most striking is that it cuts ties with the Public Administration and the Junta de Andalucía.
Apparently, the silence of these four years has made several users take over the reins of the distribution and have created a new version with the nickname of Community Edition or also known as Unofficial.
Along with the launch of the version, users have not remained silent and have begun to report facts related to the Andalusian distribution and the disagreements that have occurred with the Junta de Andalucía.Apparently, according to one of the users involved in Guadalinex v10 Community Edition in su Blog, version 10 of Guadalinex has been created for a long time but stopped by decision of the Junta de Andalucía, which, one part does not want this distribution to go ahead and another part does not know who has control. The result is a version that is finished but does not have its installation images created. So several users (and it is that Forowen has been joined by others who have created versions with other installers) have decided to create this Guadalinex v10 Community Edition.
Guadalinex v10 Community Edition en a version that is based on the new Linux Mint 19, like Guadalinex v9 was based on Linux Mint, with cinnamon as desktop and with a single 64-bit version. Yes, Guadalinex v10 Community Edition is the first version of Guadalinex to have a version for this platform. The lite version and the 32-bit version are gone, at least for the moment just like Ubiquity, the installer that has been replaced by Systemback.
You can get the installation image as well as the official documentation through the official website and through Guadausers forum that Indiocabreao, a loyal follower of the distribution, created at the time for users who believed in the project.
On the one hand it is a pity that the Public Administration moves away from this type of project, in addition to consolidated projects such as Guadalinex. But on the other hand, the fact that there are users who decide to work on this distribution and release new versions is positive because that will mean that the distribution will not die. What do you think? Will you try this new version? Did you know Guadalinex?
