Getting Started With Fedora

Filed under
Linux

It takes some time to setup the perfect desktop. Between importing your music and files, configuring preferences for the look and feel of the environment, and getting used to a new systems idiosyncrasies, a new desktop operating system can put some serious brakes on your productivity. It pays in the long run to spend some time getting your environment just right. Here’s how I’ve managed to wrangle Fedora 18 into a decently capable workstation.

I’m a refugee from Ubuntu. Ubuntu has been my go-to distro since it came out, so moving over to Fedora has not been without its challenges. However, since I’m also a sysadmin running CentOS and Red Hat, I’m not completely out of my element either. My first impressions installing Fedora were positive. I did not find the installer to be confusing, and I thought the entire process went smoothly.

NVIDIA reveals GPUs for blade servers, Linux desktop support

VMworld 2015 NVIDIA has announced the second version of its Grid desktop virtualisation software, complete with a pair of GPUs for blade servers. NVIDIA is pitching GRID as a hardware offering tuned to the needs of graphically-demanding desktop virtualisation (VDI) workloads. If that sounds a bit exotic, consider environments like the resources industry, where on-site engineers need CAD and modelling tools, but miners are loathe to deploy desktops in the remote sites where stuff gets dug out of the ground. VDI works a treat in such spots. Read more
