Linux Distribution Releases to Watch in 2011

by Jason Brooks
Owing to its open licensing and decentralized style of development, there's never a shortage of new Linux-based operating systems releases poised for release. Looking ahead at the rest of 2011, eWEEK Labs has compiled a list of Linux distribution releases worth watching for in the months ahead. Among the releases we're tracking are updates to Canonical's Ubuntu Linux and Red Hat's Fedora Linux, as well as to those distributions' more non-commercially-oriented cousins. What's more, 2011 stands to be one of the most active years yet for mobile flavors of the open-source OS.
