Linux Shorts: Mageia 3, Slackware, and Fedora 19

Anne Nicolas announced Mageia 3 RC April 21 in classic installer media. The team still struggles with live images, but it looks like they’re closing in on that GRUB 2 enigma. Elsewhere Slackware’s development tree leader and founder Patrick Volkerding changed his mind. And finally from another corner of the Penguin universe, Fedora 19 Alpha would be released tomorrow as rescheduled, featuring things like MariaDB instead of MySQL, Scratch programming environment, and optional Syslinux etc.
