KDE Developer Missing, Linux Reviews, and Lightweight Distros

KDE Developer Missing
Phoronix’s Michael Larabel reported recently that Jean-Baptiste Mardelle suddenly stopped posting to his blog, answering mail(ing lists), or applying commits. Mardelle was the project lead for the Kdenlive video editor project. Mardelle’s last post was on Wednesday, July 3, 2013. No one really knows anything, all that’s available are questions. Where is Mardelle? Is the project dead?

OpenMandriva Lx 2013.0 Review
The Navy Christian posted a review of the recently released OpenMandriva Lx 2013.0. He tested it on his MacBook Pro and had issues that may or may not be the result of the test bed. However, overall, it’s an interesting read where one gets a good introduction to the new community Mandriva distribution.
