Yet another Linux Distro Timeline

I was so impressed by the other two timelines that I decided to build on the fine work that had proceeded me.

enjoy

ps: If anyone is interested in a hard copy of this, send me an e-mail. Litho is too expensive, but I might be able to get an A1 digital print done at a not too unreasonable cost if I order 50 copies.

One of the other time lines had Ark, but not Yellow Dog. You have Yellow Dog, but not Ark. A wiki would be wonderful, but sounds to good to be true. Anyway, please add Ark Linux to it.

would be an SVG-based Linux Timeline wiki!

Yes, it would be possible to setup a Wiki to produce SVG Timeline. I would think you would need to limit the scope of data that could be entered to a relatively fixed format. This could then be rendered into a SVG image. I think it might be necessary to have a graphic editor input to move some of the parts of the timeline around. Parts of the technology required are already around, if someone (else) want to have a go....

US dates vs. rest-of-world dates. In the US, we write it backwards.

In my youth I worked a lot with a distribution called muLinux (µLinux), a two-floppy distribution with X. Later I had a chance to install LoopLinux (a slimmed down RedHat dist) before I finally bought a computer upon which I could install RedHat 5.2. (Later on I fell in love with SuSE and bough it's 7.3 and I have been faithfull to that cute lizard ever since...)

I'd really love to see those two darlings of mine in the timeline! :)

muLinux wasn't too hard to research so its been added, but I couldn't find sufficient info on LoopLinux. Point me at some online resources for start/end dates, versions....

Not contesting, but I had never heard that SuSE branched from Slackware. Is it true?

Yes SuSE got it's start in life as a version of Slackware. See:

First of all, great work!

But, afaik, Edubuntu is a direct descendant of Ubuntu, and not via Kubuntu. Same goes for Xubuntu not being based on Edubuntu, aifaik. Although it might be possible Xubuntu is based on Kubuntu, or at least inspired by Kubuntu.

Hello, great job, it's a good idea to put linux kernel and others stuffs (icon !)

Just few thing :
* Archlinux is based on Crux
* for Slackware line, the correct name is « Vector » not Victor ;) http://vectorlinux.com/

Good job :)

From my research Arch is not based on Crux as Judd says.....

Arch Linux is descended from Crux. Judd once summarized the differences:

"I used Crux before starting Arch. Arch started out as Crux, pretty much. Then I wrote pacman and makepkg to replace my bash pseudo packaging scripts (I built Arch as an LFS system to begin). So the two are completely separate distros, but technically, they're almost the same. We have dependency support (officially) for example, although Crux has a community that provides other features. CLC's prt-get will do rudimentary dependency logic. Crux gets to ignore lots of problems we have too, since it's a very minimalistic package set, basically what Per uses and nothing else."

sorry about any word wrap with the input form for this text
