If life is full of tough choices, then Christmas overflows with quagmires. Turkey or ham? Live or artificial? To nog or not to nog?

And then there’s the perennial question, Linux, Mac, or Windows? Indeed, the impending new year offers a bumper crop of system software, including Ubuntu 6.10, (already out) Windows Vista (may be out by the time you read this, but don’t rush — wait for the first service pack), and Mac OS X “Leopard” (Yes, Mr. Jobs. Of course, we can postpone Christmas. What’s that? Don’t announce the date? Not even Santa can know? Oh, yes. Very hush hush.)

Linux is bulletproof, you can splurge on nog with all of the cash you save, and the little penguin is just so cute. Then again, Mac OS X is loaded with sugary eye candy, oodles of applications, and offers the best software and hardware integration on the market. But then there’s Windows Vista, the must-have for The Ghost of Christmas Future. Decisions, decisions.

Full Story.

budgie-remix 16.04.2 Comes Equipped with the HWE Kernel from Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS

The great folks from the Ubuntu Budgie (formerly budgie-remix) GNU/Linux distribution had the pleasure of announcing the general availability of budgie-remix 16.04.2. What's budgie-remix 16.04.2, you may wonder? Well, as Ubuntu Budgie did not yet have a stable release, and because many people are still using the distro on their PCs with its previous name (budgie-remix), the developers updated it to be based on the recently released Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system. Being based on Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS, which inherits the newer Linux 4.8 kernel and an updated graphics stack based on Mesa 12.0 3D Graphics Library from Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak), budgie-remix 16.04.2 comes equipped with its HWE kernel and graphics stack, as well as the latest Budgie 10.2.9 desktop environment.
