Reddit: Crunchbang++ vs Knoppix vs Mint

Saturday 11th of June 2016 06:18:23 AM

I am going to be psrtioning a computer three ways. One partition is going to be for ArchLinux, which is going to be my go-to distro. Second will either be SteamOS or Windows, for gaming. Third is going to be my "safety OS", for when: -Arch or SteamOS break -A friend is using my computer -There is something I can't do on Arch that I can do on a Debian-based OS I have considered these three. Crunchbang++ I hear is efficient, yet usable. Knoppix comes loaded with a lot of software and I hear it handles user friendliness relatively well. Mint does the same, and has better support for drivers. Which should I choose here?

LXer: Getting started with ReactOS

Saturday 11th of June 2016 03:35:10 AM
ReactOS is a relatively new open source operating system that resembles the looks of Windows NT and aims to offer similar levels of functionality and application compatibility. Featuring a wine-based user mode, this system doesn't use any of the Unix architecture, but is a rewrite of the NT architecture from scratch, with its very own FAT32 implementation, and completely free of legal implications. That said, this is not yet another Linux distro, but a unique Windows-like system that is a part of the free software world. This quick guide aims at users who want an easy to use, open source replacement for their Windows system.

LXer: Judge blasts Oracle’s attempt to overturn pro-Google jury verdict

Saturday 11th of June 2016 01:46:31 AM
Alsup's stinging order [PDF], which rejects Oracle's argument [PDF] on every front, hardly comes as a surprise. But the document provides the first insights as to what Oracle might bring up in an appeal proceeding, which the company has said it will pursue. In the order, Alsup defends how he ran the trial. The evidence and instructions presented to the jury were a mix of mandates from the appeals court, which overruled Alsup on the key issue of API copyrightability, and modifications urged by both sides' lawyers.
