ROSA Desktop R1 GNOME preview

Filed under
Linux

ROSA Desktop R1 GNOME is the edition of the R line of desktop distributions from ROSA Laboratory that uses the GNOME 3 desktop environment. The beta edition that was supposed to be a Release Candidate was made available for download earlier today.

This article offers a few screen shots from a test installation of this beta edition in a virtual environment. Note that while the GNOME 3 edition of the R series is still in the beta stage of development, stable editions of the KDE and LXDE desktop environments have already been released.

You may view screen shots from a test installation of the KDE edition here. A detailed review of it will be posted soon.

The default desktop of this GNOME 3 edition is extensions-enhanced, but even at that, it’s still not good enough for me. By the way, that weather info is courtesy of an extension, and I do not live in Moscow.

Though, the two most widely used and most popular server distros are CentOS and Ubuntu. This is the main dilemma among admins, both beginners and professionals. Having experience with both (and more) distros, we decided to do a comparison of CentOS and Ubuntu when used for a server. Read more
