Fedora 17 LXDE Review:

Filed under
Linux

Fedora 15's stability and usability didn't disappoint when I ran it through its paces last year. What convinced me not to keep Lovelock 15 was Gnome 3, which crippled my productivity to no end. After the somewhat lackluster Ubuntu 12.04 Unity LTS, I was looking forward to Fedora 17 on an LXDE desktop.

Bottomline

Unless you have plenty of time and prefer to set up your OS from scratch like the many ArchLinux fans out there (including me), Fedora 17 Beefy Miracle LXDE is an excellent canvas to build your fast and efficient Linux system. Fedora 17 LXDE is slim with very minimal applications - perfect for those users who prefer to select their own utilities and productivity applications without having to uninstall the included applications.

Samsung Galaxy S6 review

I have been pretty hard on Samsung over the past few years, but let’s be honest: the company deserved it. Time and time again, we’ve seen Samsung launch fantastic flagship smartphones that are class leaders in almost every key area. Samsung’s mobile displays are the best in the world, many of its software additions have mass appeal, and its phones are always among the best available when it comes to performance. But where design, build quality and materials are concerned, Samsung has always been at the bottom of the pile. That changes in 2015, and the Galaxy S6 is our first look at the future of flagship Samsung phones. On the inside, the S6 is everything we have come to expect from the company’s premium smartphones. And on the outside, the Galaxy S6 is like nothing we have ever seen before from Samsung. Read more
