re: Where's the...

Teehee. Well, I figured folks who didn't use a(n) *buntu wouldn't participate in this one. And now they come out with an ultimate-gamers version. it took 3 days to bittorrent in, but I guess I'll take a look at it.

2-minute review of Ubuntu Ultimate Gamer

It looked really cool with a martial-arts/dragon/ying yangy black and blue theme. It's bit dark for my old eyes to take for very long, but it was definitely cool looking. As usual, I had to quickly ctrl+alt+F2 to console to edit xorg.conf file before system lock-up with all *buntus, what with my vastly differing dual monitors confusing its hardware detection. So, I knew upon this edit that for an ultimate gaming version, there would be very little games played. ...as default. It apparently does not come with proprietary drivers for ATI and NVIDIA cards, which will be needed to play any 3D games. If they are available, then why did xorg default to "nv?"

I didn't get a chance to look around too much as the first desktop icon I clicked on caused a hard-lock up requiring the use of my hardware reset button. I could do more work: install to hard drive and install the NVIDIA drivers, but in my opinion, if one is gonna put out a 3 gig livecd download and call it the ultimate gamers edition - then by-golly it should come with drivers to use it.

#kde users == #gnome users on *buntu

Seems like (more or less) the same amount of people use KDE as they use Gnome on *buntu.
And this happens eventough Gnome gets most of the attention from Canonical.
Maybe it's time for another paid developer on Kubuntu?

Leftovers: Ubuntu

  • Ubuntu-based Smartphones And Tablets Sound Good, On Paper, But...Do They Make Any Sense?
    As I previously stated in a recent article, I'm a huge fan of Ubuntu as a desktop operating system. It's friendly, reliable, consumes little resources and is largely virus-free.
  • Elementary OS 0.4 ‘Loki’ expected to be based on Ubuntu 16.04
    Elementary OS 0.4 ‘Loki’ coming soon, to be based on Ubuntu 16.04 and have plenty of new features
  • BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition tablet - The heat is on
    Some investments are financial. Some are emotional. When it comes to Linux on tablets, my motives are mostly of the latter kind. I was super-excited to learn BQ was launching a tablet with Ubuntu, something that I have been waiting for a good solid three years now. We had the phone released last spring, and now there's a tablet. The cycle is almost complete. Now, as you know, I was only mildly pleased with the Ubuntu phone. It is a very neat product, but it is not yet as good as the competitors, across all shades of the usability spectrum. But this tablet promises a lot. Full HD, desktop-touch continuum, seamless usage model, and more. Let us have a look.
  • Kubuntu-16.04 — a review
    The kubuntu implementation of Plasma 5 seems to work quite well. It’s close to what I am seeing in other implementations. It includes the Libre Office software, rather than the KDE office suite. But most users will prefer that anyway. I’m not a big fan of the default menu. But the menu can easily be switched to one of the alternative forms. I’ve already done that, and am preferring the “launcher based on cascading popup menus”. If you are trying kubuntu, I suggest you experiment with the alternative formats to see which you prefer.
  • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Review: Very Stable & Improved, Buggy Software Center, Though
    In almost all the occasions that I tested Ubuntu LTS releases, quite rightly so, they’ve always worked better than the non-LTS releases. And this Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, the 6th of such release is no exception. This one actually is even more impressive than the others because it has addressed some security related issues and even although not critical, subtle issues that I mentioned in the review. As far as the performance was concerned, Ubuntu 16.04 LTS was only largely outperformed by the memory usage where there is a large increase in memory usage. Other than that, those numbers look pretty good to me. That ‘.deb’ file issues with the Software Center is the only major concern that I can come up with. But I’m sure it’ll be fixed very soon.

Devuan Beta, Stumbling Tumbleweed, Ubuntu Too

Today in Linux news Debian-fork Devuan is forging ahead with its plans to create a distribution offering init freedom by releasing a beta for testers.

Devuan Jessie beta released

dear Init Freedom Lovers, once again the Veteran Unix Admins salute you.

Now has come the time to announce the Beta release of Devuan. Debian GNU+Linux is a fork of Debian without systemd, on its way to become much more than that. This Beta release marks an important milestone towards the sustainability and the continuation of Devuan as an universal base distribution.
