Foresight Linux: A Distribution That Stands Out From The Crowd

,----[ Quote ]
| Foresight Linux has entrusted its package management to Conary. A few of the
| cool features about Conary are:
|
| # Dependencies are defined at the file level, which brings in only the
| components needed from other packages instead of entire packages.
| # During an update, Conary only installs the diff of the update, not the full
| binary again which makes downloads and updates faster
| # If anything went wrong with an installation or update, you can rollback
| your system to a previous state. If the command conary rollback 10 is
| issued, Conary will undo the last 10 things it has done for you.
| # When fresh installing an application, Conary downloads a binary package and
| install it, process which takes a whole lot less than compiling and
| installing from source code. When a new version of the application is
| available, it just applies the diff.

Review: Foresight Linux 1.0

,----[ Quote ]
| Installation of Foresight Linux was a snap. Under VMware Fusion
| Beta on my MacBook Pro and on my Athlon 64 x2 system with GeForce
| 7800GT the installation was flawless. The graphical installer
| popped up cleanly on both and easily walked me through the
| installation process with minimal questions.
