Review: NimbleX 2007

Filed under
Linux

NimbleX is a Linux distribution built on the idea that "fast is best". It comes complete with a lot of great tools to help you do a wide variety of tasks. Even though it's setup as a desktop distribution, the uses for NimbleX are quite extensive. It is designed to run from a CD, a USB pen drive or even from the network rather than a hard drive. Not many distributions combine such a selection of boot methods. Most use one or the other, but never all three in combination.

For those who've worked with Linux for a while, you should find yourself very much at home with NimbleX. It comes complete with a full KDE interface, all of the most important KDE tools and applications (There's no kde fluff stuff. Just the important things), and runs so crazy fast that you're likely to get windburn. It also comes complete with a lot of mobile computing tools should you find yourself using this on a laptop.

Why business should bet on open source

Among the benefits of OSS is that it is hardly ever a standalone product. Most OSS is built on other open-source projects. Because of the way it is licensed, these enhancements are then passed back to the open-source community, so the software constantly evolves. So, if such open-source technology is readily available, and has proved its scalability in webscale businesses, why reinvent the wheel? Open source is certainly more accepted in the enterprise, said Tony Lock, distinguished analyst at Freeform Dynamics. “It is suitable for all businesses, not just for webscale businesses.” Read more
