Korora 21

Filed under
Reviews

My install went quite well, I had no problems and the install itself was relatively speedy. Bear in mind, however, that I have used the Anaconda installer often in the past. So I’m quite familiar with how it is laid out and what it has to offer. Use the Fedora install guide for Anaconda I linked to above if you’re new to it as it might save you some time when installing Korora 21.

Open source has some of the greatest tools, which continues to prove that you don't have to lock-down the code behind guarded walls to make a better product. Some popular open source products that don't have any match in the closed source world include Firefox, Chromium, VLC, Blender, Android, one gem that is, surprisingly, less known but extremely powerful when it comes to creating a work of art.

Pearl OS Could Be a Gem in the Making

Filed under
Reviews

Pearl OS is a revival of the discontinued Pear OS distro. Pearl picks up where Pear left off in early 2014.

Pearl OS has two desktop versions: XFCE and MATE. Both are based on Ubuntu Linux distro version 14.04 Mini release. The two flavors of Pearl OS are customized to look and act like the OS X operating system.

But Pearl is Linux and not OS X. This distro runs Debian-based Linux applications. It does not run OS X software or have actual OS X functions.

Filed under
Reviews

I have been asked on a number of occasions to take a look at LXLE.

I downloaded LXLE 14.04.1 a long time ago and for one reason or another it has taken until now to finally sit down and get to grips with it.

LXLE stands for Lubuntu Extra Life Extension. The purpose of LXLE is to take the base Lubuntu distribution and enhance it so that all the features the average person requires is available from the outset.

Deepin 2014.2 - Mindbogglingly unique

Filed under
Reviews

Linux Deepin remains a refreshing, unique offering on the distro market, with a truly beautiful composition and some rather lovely programs. It works well overall, but its attempt to look apart comes with the stability slash complexity price. The performance is not among the best, and some of the tools and applications could benefit from slight simplification, in that they ought to reduce the bling in favor of pure functionality.

There are other problems, like the lack of the live session, the Store clutter and such. Still, if you are looking for something Ubuntu-like with charm and culture of its own, then Deepin realizes a reality that is so far different from others, it's quite amazing. Not the best plug and play derivative, to be sure, but it could easily get there. The recipe has been laid out hereby. Final grade, something like 9/10. Not bad at all. You should definitely give it a try.

First Impressions of Netrunner 14.1

Filed under
Reviews

One of the nicest things I can say about any operating system is it is useful and running it is pleasantly boring. I like it when operating systems are easy to set up, they provide me with the tools I want so I can work (and play) and then they stay out of my way. Netrunner does exactly those things. The distribution is wonderfully easy to install, the operating system ships with lots of useful software and there are a minimum of distractions and notifications. The configuration panel offers a good balance of flexibility with easy navigation, the Muon Discover software manager is quick and easy to use and Netrunner worked well with my hardware.

Ubuntu's answer to Android is finally here, but it still needs work

At long last, the first Ubuntu phones are here. It's been more than two years since Canonical first showed off its Linux-based mobile platform, and fans have been clamoring for consumer devices ever since. The Ubuntu Edge never made its ambitious $32 million crowdfunding target, and the first handsets from BQ and Meizu were delayed last year. But finally, it's all starting to come together. BQ has started selling its "Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition" in Europe and Meizu shouldn't be too far behind with its modified MX4. Read more

Help: Linux to the rescue of older operating systems

As you know, when someone offers free stuff, we give it a few weeks in order to give each group, organization or individual in need a chance to respond. That’s what we’ll do with Mary Greenfield’s generous offer to donate free fabric, so give it another week and then we’ll forward responses to her. One of the most rewarding aspects of writing this column is realizing that it generates discussion, and here’s a response to that question about updates for an older computer running Windows ME...
