ROSA Desktop 2012 roadmap approved

The roadmap for ROSA Desktop 2012 has been approved. ROSA Linux is a line of Linux distributions published by ROSA Laboratory, a Linux solutions provider based in Moscow, Russia. The distribution is derived from Mandriva Linux.

Aside from ROSA Desktop, which is intended for private desktop users, the company also publishes a desktop edition for enterprise or business users, and has already announced plans for a ROSA Enterprise Server and ROSA Cloud Platform editions.

ROSA desktop will ship with the latest and greatest editions of software applications and the Linux kernel, while the enterprise editions will come with applications that are considered more stable, but that are two or three revisions behind those in ROSA Desktop.

The published roadmap for ROSA Desktop 2012 follows:

  • Technical preview – August 8
  • Alpha – August 22
  • Beta – October 3
  • Beta2 – October 24
  • Release Candidate – October 14
  • Final release – November 28

Reviews and tutorials for currently published ROSA Linux editions are available here. Changes to the roadmap are available here.
