LinuxInsider: Homegrown Budgie Desktop Shows Off the Beauty - and Beastliness - of Solus Simplicity

Linuxinsight - 2 hours 58 min ago
The Solus Project version 1.2, released last month, shows considerable maturity in the homegrown Budgie desktop. Solus 1.2 is the second minor release in the Shannon series, built around a custom Budgie desktop developed in-house and the eopkg package manager forked from PiSi. Solus is a Linux distribution built from scratch. The Budgie desktop can be set to emulate the look and feel of the GNOME 2 desktop, but it is a different flavor from the GNOME 2-0 retread, MATE. It is tightly integrated with the GNOME stack.

TuxMachines: Hands-On: Upgrading Linux Mint 17.3 to 18

Linuxinsight - 3 hours 8 min ago

The first thing to do is read through the tutorial very carefully - and preferably more than once. This is not a trivial GUI procedure like the Fedora upgrade was, or like many of the previous Mint upgrades have been. It requires use of CLI commands, and those commands produce positively scary amounts of text output. It takes a relatively long time to perform the complete upgrade by Linux standards (it's done in a flash by Windows upgrade standards), and it is not entirely automated, so it will require manual intervention numerous times along the way.

Reddit: First time Linux tips?

Linuxinsight - 3 hours 14 min ago

So I've decided to install Linux on my workstation, albeit it will be dual booted as there's a few bits and pieces on Windows I use, but I want to use Linux, so I was wondering with all the versions available, which should I use? People say Linux mint, others say stay the hell away from it, some say Ubuntu, kubuntu, etc etc. But what would a good load up be in your opinion?

Thanks in advance for any insight you guys may have, seems a little daunting to start using a new OS, but it seems easier now that ever to get into it.

If it's needed here's my system specs, i built my rig so it's pretty up to date

Core i7 6700k @ 4.4Ghz 16GB ram @ 3000mhz GTX 1080 founders ed. Asus z170 sabertooth mobo H105 liquid cooler 500gb Samsung 840 evo ssd

    Linux kernel developer Jiri Slaby announced the release of the sixty-second maintenance update for the long-term supported Linux 3.12 kernel series, which will receive support until 2017 because of SUSE Enterprise Linux. Linux kernel 3.12.62 LTS is a modest update, and looking at the diff from the previous maintenance release, version 3.12.61, we can notice that it changes a total of 96 files, with 1213 insertions and 1053 deletions. Among the changes, we can notice lots of fixes for the SPARC hardware architecture, but there are various other improvements for the ARM, MIPS, PA-RISC, and x86 instruction set architectures.

    I've discussed elsewhere that usability is about real people doing real tasks in a reasonable amount of time. Some researchers also refer to "learnability" and "memorability" to define usability—this is very similar to discoverability. Can you discover the features of the system just by poking at it? Is the user interface obvious enough that you can figure it out on your own?
