As the first ever Ubuntu Phone the BQ Aquaris E45 Ubuntu Edition had the potential to wow and prove there's life beyond Apple and Android, but unfortunately it fails.
By simply slapping it on a budget Android handset, both Canonical and BQ missed out on releasing a handset that was tailor-made for the Ubuntu Phone experience and that could show off its full potential.
Elementary OS is a really nice Linux distribution and if you are a computer user who has no interest in learning about the command line and you just want to use your computer for playing music, videos and games then it is perfect.
The effort that has gone into the desktop environment really pays dividends as it really is easy to use. Couple this with the ease in which it is possible to set up printers, scanners, audio devices and other peripherals and you have a really good operating system.
Bodhi is a Ubuntu based Linux distribution, known for being lightweight and highly customizable. It comes with Moksha Desktop Environment and uses lightweight windows manager known as Enlightenment. The installer for this operating system is hardly around 550 MBs in size and it installs pretty fast; because it comes with only minimal set of software applications pre-installed as it claims to give user full control on how to populate their system with their required applications after the installation. The development team is working on completing the next major release Bodhi 3.1.0, so they have made Pre-Release version of this distribution available for download and testing. In this way, dev team will be able to fix any reported bugs and users will be able to get familiar with the look & feel, and working of new operating system.
Korora is an old GNU/Linux distribution (originated in 2005) that used to be based on ‘Gentoo’. But in 2007 the development of Korora was abandoned, yet in 2010, it was reborn, but this time it was based on ‘Fedora’, rather than ‘Gentoo’.
But to be honest with you, I’ve never had used ‘Korora’ before. Yet, after installing ‘Korora 22′ (based on Fedora 22) and using it for the past three days, it’s goals became pretty clear to me. It is this good looking ‘Fedora remix’ that strives to be the ‘Fedora’ that hosts a mild attitude & a sense of practicality, although good folks at ‘Fedora’ don’t have that luxury. In a world that’s dominated by ignorance & selfishness, their struggle is a difficult one. I admire their courage.
