On September 16, 2019, the Free Software Foundation posted news of Stallman’s resignation as president and from its board of directors on their site. The post states, “The board will be conducting a search for a new president, beginning immediately.”
After just over 2 years of development, the Debian Project released the latest stable version of its operating system, code name “Buster” today.
Debian 10 “Buster” ships with several different desktop environments including:
KDE Plasma 5.14,
Running on the 4.19 LTS kernel, Buster also comes with UEFI Secure Boot and AppArmor enabled by default. One of the biggest changes in this release is the GNOME desktop using the Wayland display server by default instead of Xorg. This seems like an odd choice for Debian considering their reputation for stability. Considering Wayland is not fully compatible with Nvidia graphics cards and doesn’t have all of the features of Xorg it will be interesting to see how this works out.
More information can be found on Debian’s homepage along with links to download the iso image.
