I’ve had two or three days to look over my XO and I’ll admit up front that I really love it. I don’t know all the ins and outs of it, and it will take me some time to get used to the way things work, but I believe I’ll be keeping this one for a very long time.

At this point I do have some reservations about certain things, as well as some big thumbs up for the people that put it together. I’ll list what I see as the downsides first, that way I can close on a positive note. Because no matter what negative things I might say, I really really like this little machine.

If I could put my finger on one thing that I really didn’t care for, it would probably be

Ultimate Linux on the Desktop

Over the past couple of years I have set out to create the ultimate Linux on the desktop experience for myself. Obviously everyone who runs Linux has their own opinions on things.

Dedoimedo interviews: DistroWatch

I don't there's much for me to add. Jesse provided a very detailed drilldown into what DistroWatch is, what it does, and most importantly, how you can help, whether you're a reader or a distro developer.

Anyhow, I'd like to thank Jesse, introspect on our uncanny pseudo-genetic similarity, and go back to plotting and hatching additional stories, reviews and interviews. To wit, if you have any ideas or recommendations, or if you crave some spotlight yourself, feel free to contact me. WARP 9, engage. Read more

GoboLinux: A Linux Distribution With New Filesystem Hierarchy

GoboLinux introduces a lot of new ideas and designs into the Linux distributions world. Things like the filesystem hierarchy and the compiling scripts are amazing examples of what “modernizing” Linux distributions may really mean. However, the distribution wasn’t intended to be “user-friendly” or “ready-out-of-the-box”. Because of this, it can be said actually that the distribution manages to achieve its goals. An experianced user with a lot of time would definitely enjoy using and tweaking GoboLinux to fit his needs and learn in his way. Read more
