avforums.com: This may be of interest to people who are upgrading from an old laptop etc and think that because it struggles with windows it's destined to lay dusty in the loft.

lazytechguy.com: Well to really have fun, we need loads of other applications and some tweaks. Lets check what Minime offers and then we will go ahead and apply the required tweaks.

MiniMe, a Bite of PCLinuxOS 2008

Filed under
PCLOS

junauza.blogspot: MiniMe as the name implies, is a stripped-down version of PCLinuxOS. It serves as a foretaste of what has yet to come since the development of PCLinuxOS 2008 is still underway. Nevertheless, MiniMe is pretty much functional and can be installed and used as a complete desktop operating system.

PCLinuxOS is the best Distro

tonyrs-blog.blogspot: I really like OpenSUSE Linux, but the best distro is PCLinuxOS. If there was ever an OS that could help me 'throw Windows out the window,' this is it. Ive tried using Mac as an alternative to Windows, but I guess it just wasn't for me.

PCLinuxOS Day 11 - Documentation and Information

Filed under
PCLOS

ruminationsonthedigitalrealm.org: I am not someone who believes that a Linux distributions sells itself, that technological achievement is enough to push it to the desktop of end users. As long as the educational systems keep on teaching Windows-based skills, there will be a lot of users who need some hand holding, some guidance, some instruction. What does PCLinuxOS have to offer in this regard?

PCLinuxOS 2008 on my ThinkPad T61 - Part 2

Filed under
PCLOS

temporaryland.wordpress: As I mentioned on Part 1 of this review the version of PCLinuxOS I am using is the MiniMe 2008 edition. For those of us that already know what applications we need, the MiniMe edition is actually preferred. It is very easy to install the needed applications from Synaptic.

PCLinuxOS 2008: We have Another Winner

Filed under
PCLOS

distrogue.blogspot: I waxed poetic about PCLinuxOS 2007 a few months ago when I compared it to Mint (and even earlier about version 0.93a). The new version, PCLinuxOS 2008, will ship with KDE 4, but at the time of writing, the final isn't out yet. They recently released a so-called "MiniMe" version of the final product with KDE 3.5, and it's better than ever- to the point that I would actually use it.

PCLinuxOS 2008 on my ThinkPad T61

PCLOS

temporaryland.wordpress: A few weeks ago I wrote about my experiences installing several different distributions on my ThinkPad T61. One of the distributions I tested was PCLinuxOS 2007 and there were a couple of small issues. With the recent release of the 2008 version I thought it would be good to write about how this new version works on my laptop. However, that could be summarized in just one phrase:

PCLOS Day 9 - Wrapping up the Control Center

Filed under
PCLOS

ruminations: I am enjoying these days with the control center, but it’s time to wrap it up and move on. There are plenty of other things that need attention.

PCLinuxOS Day 8 - Between a Desktop and Server

Filed under
PCLOS

ruminations: Another day at the control center. I am impressed with the scope of tasks that can be executed via one tool. Earlier I mentioned Webmin and the control center shares quite a few characteristics with that tool (though the functions are different, of course). Let’s continue digging deeper.

Your Old Computer Can Live Again with Emmabuntüs 2

Emmabuntüs 2 1.09, a distribution created for reconditioning old computers and relying on the robustness of Xubuntu 12.04.5 LTS, has been released and is now ready for download. The Emmabuntüs developers only use LTS editions of Xubuntu, and that means they actually have two distros out right now that are maintained and improved. We had Emmabuntüs 3 1.0 released a few weeks ago, but that one was using Xubuntu 14.04 LTS as the base. Now, the old branch based on Xubuntu 12.04, Emmabuntüs 2, has been improved as well and the devs have made quite a few changes. Read more

11 years developing Krita

Back in 2003 Krita had never been released and the application was only able to do some very crude painting. I think the main reason that I started contributing to Krita back then was that I was much more comfortable with the single window UI and the fact that it used Qt/KDE and C++. In the early days I would never have imagined that I would be still with the project after 10+ years and how big the project is now. Even that the project exists today is a miracle and result of many developers putting in effort without ever knowing how it would develop. For the first few years we had almost no users and the users that we had were die-hard KDE users. At the time that wasn’t a bad thing as it allowed us to do some radical changes and experiments. Many features that were developed during this time still provide the base for the current Krita. Read more
