The 24 Fastest Growing Projects on Sourceforge

Every day I don't just check RSS, several sites / blogs that I usually read, but I also like sporadically to do any kind of search on Google ... just to see what results I get 😀

Just a few days ago I was lucky to find a very interesting article, which (as usual) I share with you 😀
Yes ... «as usual«This will not be the first nor the last time that I have translated an article from ENG to ESP for the site, as I firmly believe that language cannot be a limitation, not everyone is fluent in several languages; Many only speak / read Spanish, and for that audience it is that I spend hours and hours translating articles 🙂
Of course… I am not even remotely a professional translator LOL !!! there will always be translation / interpretation errors, because I'm just a guy who tries to contribute in all possible ways 😀

Anyway, I leave you an article that I find interesting.

«The 24 Fastest Growing Projects on Sourceforge«

    Of all, I have only tried Chakra, the distro I am currently with, but it is encouraging to see so many projects moving forward.
