Lady Gaga goes gaga over Ubuntu

Humor

After enthralling the techies at Google last week, Lady Gaga has given her geek fans another reason to smile. In a press conference this Monday, the Grammy award-winning singer confessed that she is an avid fan of Ubuntu, the Linux-based operating system. Since then, Ubuntu has seen a massive surge in its popularity; particularly among teenagers.

When asked if she was a PC or a Mac, the ultra glamorous pop star replied “Well you know, I'm neither into PCs or Macs, first of all. Secondly, I don't like either of them; it's like everybody uses them these days. I'm more into this thing called Ubuntu. Two months ago, a buddy of mine told me to use it to avoid getting hacked, and I've loved it since then. It's really fun to use!”

While I initially ran into some problems, those issues have now been confirmed to be isolated, and with a replacement X99S SLI PLUS motherboard I have been stressing it constantly for the past few weeks on Fedora and Ubuntu. The X99S SLI PLUS has now proven itself to be a reliable motherboard that's still among the least expensive X99 ATX motherboards on the market. Read more

The Linux desktop-a-week review: LXDE

Over the last two weeks I’ve run nothing but LXDE as my primary Linux Desktop Environment (other than a few excursions into Android land). Been using LXDE. Been enjoying LXDE. But I have practically nothing to really say about LXDE. I feel like, after all this time, I should have something interesting to talk about. But I just plain don’t. It’s fast, blisteringly fast. And it’s damned lightweight too. After that, things get pretty boring. Read more
