RaySupreme review - Not bad but can get better

Filed under
Software

Several months back, I was contacted by the BrainDistrict people, asking me to review their new product, RaySupreme, a 3D modeling and rendering software. I said, okay. The default list of features and technique is quite long and impressive, but what really caught my eye is the so called Text-to-3D approach, where you create objects using natural language. Sounds fun.

Indeed, I have been playing with 3D software for a better part of the decade now, and have come across many different solutions, but none that would translate your words into art. Anyhow, let me show you how my testing went, with version 1.1 installed on top of Linux Mint Maya, running on an HP Pavilion laptop, mildly fortified with 4GB RAM and Nvidia 320M GT card.

Xubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet - Fabulous

I have to say, Xubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet shattered my expectations. Obliterated them. Overall, I was expecting a distro that would be about as good as its parent. Instead, I got this fine piece of digital machinery, which purrs and meows and growls like a turbo-charged tiger, if this silly metaphor makes any sense. Or is it an analogy? Now, one tiny software glitch, plus one big regression that affects the entire family. That's the sum of my complains. On the plus side, Xubuntu fully supports the hardware, including the tricky UEFI stuff, it's fast, robust, elegant, rich in software and features, simple and fun to use, and it works well with anything I've thrown at it. By far the best distro of this year. I don't give out 10/10 lightly, but I'm inclined to do that right now, even though the few tiny problems we've had prevent me from doing that. However, the whole package reminds me of Fuduntu, really. Pure and simple and just good. 9.99999/10. Try it, you won't be disappointed. We're done here. Read more

A New Firefox OS phone

Last Monday, I bought the phone anyway. I must say that I am very pleased by its performance and very cheap price. One can swap the SIM card to use the phone with another carrier here, too. Read more
