Foresight Linux is good

Filed under
Reviews

Foresight is awesome, finally gave it a shot and it is now my main distro. I am running it on my desktop pc, which is an Intel E8500 with a Nvidia 7600gt graphics card. It runs fast and seems way faster than Ubuntu 8.10 did. The only extra I installed was the extra codecs for MP3 playback. Flash works great and doesnt have any flicker to it.

Warcraft runs better in Linux

Linux

So they other day my wife decided to start playing World of Warcraft again. Thats fine since I still play and our accounts are still active. She has an HP DV5000t laptop with a dedicated Nvidia 7400 graphics card and 2gb of ram. The game has always played perfectly on the laptop even when I had to install Vista on it( I needed to learn how it works so I could fix the computers at my work).

Huawei CEO: Will keep using Android as long as it's open

He made the said comment in a Weibo post, where-in he also noted that Google's mobile OS has promoted the development of smartphones, which in turn has benefited consumers. Interestingly, he didn't say anything about whether or not Huawei is developing an in-house mobile OS - said to be called Kirin OS. His silence on the matter, though, can be taken as a confirmation of sorts, especially when his comment reflects the possibility of Google restricting the companies’ freedom with Android in future.
