Pisi Linux Beta: A Real-life Test

Filed under
Linux

I waited eagerly for the beta release of Pisi Linux. As soon as it was out, I downloaded it and installed it into a partition my ZaReason's Alto 4330 had.

The installation took about 25 minutes. Once it was over, I noticed a few bugs. For example, Pisi's Grub 2 installed into the MBR, not into the partition I chose. Well, that's not a show stopper to me. Besides, Pisi's Grub is very well designed. Anyway, I booted my brand new Linux kitten to see what it looked like and what it was capable of.

Those who used old-school Pardus will feel familiar with Pisi. Kaptan greets you and lets you choose your first-time settings. Yes, it was great to see Kaptan again!

I checked my Wifi connection first.
