Zonbu Zonbook Review

Filed under

EeePCLinuxOS: Custom PCLinuxOS build for Eee PC

Filed under
PCLOS I've never spent much time playing with PCLinuxOS, as it doesn't work very well on my primary computer. But EeePCLinuxOS looks pretty interesting. It's a custom version of EeePCLinuxOS designed for the Eee PC with a couple of tweaks that will improve its performance on the tiny laptop.

When No One Cares About Open Source

Filed under
OSS I considered jumping into the current debate about Bruce Perens' bid to formally join the Open Source Initiative, but instead, I'd like to point out something that happened to me recently; something that I think is a much bigger indicator of where the future of open source and Linux is going to go than yet another intra-community tussle.

Windows is caught between Mac and Linux

Filed under
OS For the first time in ages, the sale of new PCs with Windows as a percentage of the PC market is declining sharply. The new winner is the Mac, but, while no one does a good job of tracking the still-new, pre-installed Linux desktop market, it's also clear that Linux is finally making impressive inroads into Windows' once unchallenged market share.

From GNOME to KDE and back again: old computing habits are hard to break

Roblimo Miller: I used KDE as my primary desktop from 1996 through 2006, when I installed the GNOME version of Ubuntu and found that I liked it better than the KDE desktop I'd faced every morning for so many years. Last January, I got a new Dell Latitude D630 laptop and decided to install Kubuntu on it, but within a few weeks, I went back to GNOME. Does this mean GNOME is now a better desktop than KDE, or just that I have become so accustomed to GNOME that it's hard for me to give it up?

AmaroK + Scripts = Your Ultimate Music Solution

Filed under

Amarok is a popular free audio player based on the K Desktop Environment. Right now, it's available only under Linux and other varieties of Unix, although the Windows version is to be released soon. There has been much talk already about how it is the best music management software. However, not many amarok users are aware of the powerful scripts that can be used to extend its usability further.

GoblinX packs a lot into compact Slackware-based distro

Filed under
Linux GoblinX, an installable live CD based on the solid foundation of Slackware Linux, released Standard edition version 2.6 last month. It comes with lots of handy applications and five desktop managers: KDE, Fluxbox, Xfce, Enlightenment, and WindowMaker. I was impressed with the amount of software included as well as the stability and performance of GoblinX 2.6.

What does Wine 1.0 Mean for Business?

Filed under

Joe Brockmeier: This is a 1.0 that I wasn't sure would ever come. The idea behind Wine is simple -- one of the blockers that keeps people from switching to Linux is the fact that many of the popular applications are Windows only.

Filed under
Ubuntu The Ubuntu 8.04 beta came out last night and hardens up Hardy Heron on both the desktop and server ends for this first LTS (Long Term Support) release in nearly two years.

GNOME Control Center 3.22 to Update the Keyboard Settings, Improve Networking

The upcoming GNOME 3.22 desktop environment is still in the works, and a first Beta build was seeded to public beta testers last week, bringing multiple enhancements and new features to most of its core components and apps. While GNOME 3.22 Beta was announced on August 22, it appears that the maintainers of certain core packages needed a little more time to work on various improvements and polish their applications before they were suitable for public testing. And this is the case of GNOME Control Center, which was recently updated to version 3.21.90, which means 3.22 Beta. Read more
