Linux

Though I tend to stay away from publicly reviewing distributions that use the default GNOME 3 desktop, I evaluate them privately and if I come across one that has been modified to look like a true desktop operating system, then I will take the time to do what it takes to publish a review on it. Linux Deepin falls into that category. So expect a review of Linux Deepin soon.

A week with Sabayon on the Macbook Pro

Filed under
Linux

Last week after being desperatly disappointed with the direction Apple are taking with OSX after using Mountain Lion for a ew hour i decided to go back to using Linux. However finding the right Linux distro was important, the Macbook Pro (MBP) is not a PC, yes it will run almost every Intel based linux distro there are a few hardware gotchas which make the choice of Distro important for the quickest out of the box up and working experience.

As the title suggests a platform i'm already enamoured with was my first choice, the Gentoo based source and binary distro Sabayon with its recently updated version 8.

Filed under
Linux

the announcement of Mountain Lion is the Vista moment for Apple, it's that point when many Apple users will take time to step back and think about the Operating system on their Apple PC.

Windows 8 will be one option However Linux has become a very stable OS when done right on Apple hardware. However it takes a big step and a leap of faith to drop OSX..

Best Free and Open Source Terminal Session Recording

The vast majority of computer users depend on a graphical user interface, and fear the command line. However, the command line holds significant power and versatility. Commands issued from a shell offer system administrators a quick and easy way to update, configure and repair a system. The benefits of the command line are not only confined to system administration. The ability to transverse the file system quickly, give more information about files and directories, automate tasks, bring together the power of multiple console tools in a single command line, and run shell scripts are just a few examples of how the command line can offer a potent, multifarious toolbox.

Keep Tabs on Your To-Do Lists With This GNOME Extension

Task Widget is an open source GNOME extension that shows your to-do list embedded in the GNOME message tray (also known as the calendar or notification shade). This widget area displays your pending to-do items, and lets you check off tasks as you complete them. Task Widget is is able to integrate “…with GNOME Online Accounts and a number of GNOME applications, such as Evolution and To Do” but it is is not, by design, intended to replace any of those apps or services. Or to put it another way: it’s not a standalone task manager or to-do app. You can’t, for example, add a task from the widget area, or edit one either. You can only mark a task as done (or unmark it as done). Read more
