Frugalware 0.3 - getting there!

Filed under
Reviews

Frugalware strives to combine simplicity of distros like Slackware or Arch with ease of configuration and use. It adopted Packman (from Arch Linux) as its package manager, and is compiled for i686 architecture. I've been following the progress of this project from their very first release and I really wanted to like it because the concept appealed to me, but until now I found it plagued by various small and not so small problems that would quickly turn me off. So I am very happy to report it appears that things have come together this time and Frugalware is starting to live up to its potential.

Gentoo User's Response to Slacker who tried Gentoo

This is a gentoo user's answer to Mr. Slacker Tries His Hand at Gentoo. If you missed the story on OSNews on the Slacker Tries His Hand at Gentoo, you really must read it. It's a hilarios account of an experienced linux user's first try at gettting a Gentoo system all set up for work or play. At first I was gonna make a cute witty comment to the story and be on my way, but instead it turned into an article. I guess as I read his story I found I had something to say at about every experience he shared.

Seems a hot topic for internet journalists in the technology field is "which distro should you try." As you might know, I download and check out a few from time to time. I started testing Linux back when there were only a few players in the field. I'm quite fortunate for my site's sake this is no longer the case. In fact, there are so many these days, what's a newbie to do?
