Black Lab Linux 8 'Onyx' Alpha 1 Released

The PC / Opensystem LLC announced availability of Black Lab Linux 8 Alpha 1,  development release of Ubuntu LTS/Debian based GNU/Linux distributions version 8.x series.

From release announcement:
Since this is a consumer-focused release we focused on issues that end-users bring to our attention. First and most important : migration tools, built into the installer, for the growing crowd moving from Windows and Mac OS X, and even other Linux distributions (Ubuntu, Mint) to the unparalleled stability of Black Lab. For that type of migration we now have the Aptik application bundled in;it can help move the most critical system settings from another distribution over to your new BL installation. Next : improved device driver management and a new built-in device driver manager to assist in loading third party binary drivers for proprietary hardware
