Reddit: Is fedora or opensuse welcoming to new users who want to use it daily for non-coding purposes?

Friday 10th of June 2016 05:54:08 PM

I basically want to use linux the same way I use windows, for entertainment. Watch videos, twitch streams, movies. Play some games that work fine on linux and ye that's pretty much it, I'll keep W10 for microsoft office and adobe stuff.
I want a visually appealing one as well, that's why fedora on GNOME seems like the best choice, but I'm not sure if its easy to use. I have seen linux mint as well but its kinda windows look-a-like.

TuxMachines: Q&A: Jonathan Riddell on the release of KDE neon User Edition 5.6

Friday 10th of June 2016 04:36:51 PM

I’m thrilled to be part of the first project to bring KDE’s flagship desktop software to our users direct from the KDE community. We had to fill in a few gaps in what Plasma offers its users to complete the experience but we did that by working in Plasma rather than doing our work separately. So we added bootup themes for Grub and Plymouth and we’ve worked to make sure the app store, Discover, covers the whole archive. But the most important feature is what Neon is intended to be, a Plasma 5.6 desktop as the developers intended it.

Peppermint 7 Released

Peppermint 7 launched a few days ago. Peppermint is a lightweight Ubuntu-based Linux distribution with an emphasis on speed and simplicity. Although the name is similar to Linux Mint, the projects aren't directly related. Peppermint originally was envisioned as a "spicier" alternative to Mint—whatever that means! Many distros come with a wide assortment of feature-rich applications, and that's great for power users who need those apps. But older machines can struggle to cope with those demanding distros. Peppermint solves the problem by offering a carefully curated suite of web apps that perform tasks traditionally handled by native apps. It's an approach that will be familiar to any Chromebook users reading this article. Read more
