After giving it some thought, I have decided to re-organize Distro Hunt and convert it into an UNBIASED VIDEO LISTING/NEWS component of the Cup of Linux community. Therefore, I will start adding distributions with links to these projects myself. Everything in the TOP 100 from various sources and news sites will be listed over time...
The goal here is to have a VIDEO LISTING SERVICE... sometimes a screenshot is NOT ENOUGH!
This service operates on DONATIONS ONLY. All funds received go back into the Cup of Linux community and will cover the expenses to maintain our servers and possibly upgrade such services as needed.
Volunteers are needed to help maintain the Distro Hunt website. This is a STAFF position, candidates must have research skills. They will be provided with a link to a website and they will need to obtain information to help us list a distribution. DistroHunt uses a KEYWORD system for listing all distributions and this is the information each listing will provide:
- Distribution name:
- Website which contains downloads, documentation and support
- KEYWORDS: desktops offered (Xfce, KDE and more)
- KEYWORDS: Runs on (Arm, x86, x86_64 and more)
- KEYWORDS: Type of OS (Linux, BSD or Hurd)
- KEYWORDS: Type of OS (Beginner, Source, Gaming and more)
I am also considering adding a NEWS module to the site and I will also accept press releases from developers. Suffice it to say, this new version of DistroHunt will be much easier to maintain and that is a Win Win for everyone.
