Exploring a different direction with VectorLinux 7.1

Filed under
Reviews

Often times, when we look out over the sea of Linux distributions, we see a lot of Debian based projects, dozens of Ubuntu spins and a healthy collection of Fedora derivatives. It seems to me that distributions based on Slackware are sighted less and less these days. Maybe Slackware's traditional style just does not appeal to new distribution creators or maybe the distribution's conservative nature has become a liability in today's environment of fast paced development. Whatever the reason, VectorLinux 7.1 (a Slackware derivative) was launched back in June and I, hungry for a taste of Slackware, happily added it to my list of projects to review.

HP Probook 455 G2 Ubuntu review

Reviews
Ubuntu

The HP Probook 455 G2 with Ubuntu is very affordable, but even without the expense of Windows it feels a little cheap and lacks polish in various places from the hardware to Ubuntu itself. It’s by no means bad, but unless you specifically need Linux then a good Chromebook would be a better value and better designed Windows alternative – as long as you’re happy to work exclusively in the cloud.

REVIEW : First Impression on Kali Linux 2.0

Filed under
Reviews

Kali Linux 2.0 is released on today (August 11, 2014 EST). I downloaded 64-bit full version and installed it on VirtualBox 5.0. The host computer has Intel Celeron(R) CPU N2930 @ 1.83GHz × 4 and 8 GB RAM. I assigned 5 GB RAM to Kali Linux 2.0. It is quite slow for it to run with 5GB RAM on my VirtualBox 5.0. Meanwhile, the sound always mute on every start up even you have set it before.

Playing with antiX 15

Filed under
Reviews

The antiX distribution is a lightweight operating system based on Debian. The latest release was put together using packages from Debian 8 "Jessie" and ships with SysV init software instead of systemd. The latest release, antiX 15, is available in three editions: Core-libre (233MB), Base (582MB) and Full (686MB). There are 32-bit and 64-bit x86 builds of each edition. The antiX wiki tells us that the Core edition ships with virtually no software pre-selected for us, allowing us to customize the operating system to our needs. The Base edition is for older computers, like Pentium II and Pentium III machines, while the Full edition is for more modern computers and people who want a complete desktop experience. I opted to download antiX's Full edition.

Motorola Moto G Review: Great, Bargain-Priced Android Smartphone

Filed under
Android
Reviews

Moto G has been a joy to test and use. It is lightweight, easy to hold and store in a pocket or purse, and performs nearly as well as many of the premium devices on the market.

Aside from a somewhat beefier processor and a higher-resolution screen, the Moto G could fool many users and experts alike. The new G operates like it is a much more expensive device.
