AV Linux 6.0.1 Review – Audio Visual Perfection

Filed under
Linux

AV Linux 6.0 came out towards the end of last year after an apparently difficult development period. AV Linux does take a while to iterate though, and there were some big changes from version 5 to 6, such as switching from Linux Kernel 2.x to 3.x for better hardware support. A point update has been released for 6.0 now, which includes some minor upgrades and bug fixes throughout the distro and its apps.

AV Linux comes as a fully functional, live booting OS, perfect for using with a USB stick or live CD and using it where you can. It does also include a fairly basic installation function, which gives you just enough control to partition your system and then install it. While it isn’t as pretty or user friendly as some of the major distros, it does the job and explains what you need to be doing at each of the steps. The biggest hassle during installation in general is changing locale and keyboard if you’re not American.

KDE and Akademy

  • KDE unveils Plasma Mobile, a free and open Linux OS for phones
    Move over, Ubuntu Touch and Android. There's new competition in town. The KDE community just unveiled Plasma Mobile, a free and open-source mobile operating system. This is nothing new for the KDE project. Before Ubuntu Touch was ever announced, the KDE community had a long-term vision of convergence. Plasma 5 on the desktop has a “converged shell” that can switch between different interfaces for different device types. KDE even attempted to release tablets with their Plasma software preinstalled, but this never worked out.
