Foresight Linux was a great distribution back in the day for showcasing the latest GNOME components, but after a decade of work, the project is shutting down.

Michael Johnson on the behalf of the Foresight Linux Council announced that due to insufficient volunteer activity, the project will be closing up at month's end. Besides no more Foresight releases, the exisiting software repositories and other services -- including the mailing lists -- will be shutdown by month's end. The main Foresight Linux domain will just sit in a read-only mode for the indefinite future.

The farewell message to the Foresight Linux distribution was made via this mailing list thread earlier today.
