Looking Forward: Fedora Core 5

Filed under
Reviews

I usually like to wait for a Linux distribution to officially be released before I review it, but there comes a time in every mans life when he needs to live on the edge and this is my time. I am... ahem... living on the edge. I'm not sure how many of you recall, but last year I did a short review of Fedora Core 4 right before it's release (FC4 Test 2 if I recall correctly) to give everyone a rundown of what to expect in the eagerly anticipated release. I thought it would be interesting to see where it was at exactly one release later, so here we are folks. If you don't remember the first article, don't worry about it. That story is totally old news now and I just tend to ramble anyway. So, what do we have to look forward to in Fedora Core 5? Well, I will say this right up front: what I've seen so far is very, very cool. As you will see from the feature list, Fedora Core 5 is boning up to be a distro that is on the cutting edge, so the final release should cause the mirrors to melt for the first week. Let's take a closer look, shall we?

Xubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet - Fabulous

I have to say, Xubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet shattered my expectations. Obliterated them. Overall, I was expecting a distro that would be about as good as its parent. Instead, I got this fine piece of digital machinery, which purrs and meows and growls like a turbo-charged tiger, if this silly metaphor makes any sense. Or is it an analogy? Now, one tiny software glitch, plus one big regression that affects the entire family. That's the sum of my complains. On the plus side, Xubuntu fully supports the hardware, including the tricky UEFI stuff, it's fast, robust, elegant, rich in software and features, simple and fun to use, and it works well with anything I've thrown at it. By far the best distro of this year. I don't give out 10/10 lightly, but I'm inclined to do that right now, even though the few tiny problems we've had prevent me from doing that. However, the whole package reminds me of Fuduntu, really. Pure and simple and just good. 9.99999/10. Try it, you won't be disappointed. We're done here. Read more

A New Firefox OS phone

Last Monday, I bought the phone anyway. I must say that I am very pleased by its performance and very cheap price. One can swap the SIM card to use the phone with another carrier here, too. Read more
