Foresight Linux KDE Edition: The start of the odyssey!

Filed under
Linux

I decided to give KDE a chance on my home system. The first step was to download the brand spanking alpha ISO for Foresight Linux KDE Edition and bring it home.

I waited until everyone was asleep to backup my files and got ready for the long install… AND BOY WAS I DISAPPOINTED! The install, including formatting my 200GB hard drive took 4 MINUTES!

Once I rebooted the machine I was faced with a pretty vanilla KDE installation, with pretty much most of the applications out there already installed for me. Since the last time I played with KDE was several years ago, I took my time learning the applications and tweaking my desktop look and feel to my heart’s content. The first thing that captured my fancy was Amarok! WOW! I loaded my 22 GB of music in there and let it sort it all out, including getting covers for the albums, and moved on to Akregator. Having been a Liferea user for quite some time, I felt right at ease with it and was able to import my old feeds and start reading my news in no time.

Linux Action Show ends after 10-year run

This past Sunday, Jupiter Broadcasting announced the Linux Action Show—one of the longest-running podcasts in the Linux world, which has aired almost continuously since June 10, 2006—is coming to an end and closing down production. Over a decade. That is a seriously good run for any show—podcast, TV, radio or otherwise. When I and my co-host created the Linux Action Show (typically abbreviated as LAS) nearly 11 years ago, we had no idea it would last this long. Nor did we have any idea of how far it would grow.
