Living With Daryna for One Week

Filed under
Linux

Ok, ok... I know it's a little too late for a review of Linux Mint 4.0 (codename Daryna), but I was "dating" her sisters and I thought: "Why not give Daryna a chance, too?". This review has been written during an entire week, starting the 26th and ending the 30th of November. I tested Linux Mint 4.0 on a computer with the following specs:

• AMD K8 nForce 250Gb Motherboard
• AMD Sempron 2800+ Processor
• Nvdia GeForce FX5200 Video Card
• 512 MB RAM
• LG CD-RW/DVD-ROM Drive
• 17" BENQ T720 Monitor

Day One: 26th Nov, 2007

So, here we are on my first day with Daryna, also known as Linux Mint 4.0. I started with the regular installation. If you’ve installed Ubuntu or an Ubuntu-based operating system before, then you would have no difficulties in installing Linux Mint as well. The installation process is very simple and straightforward; first, you select your country, then the keyboard layout, followed by the partitioning step where I have selected "Guided - Use entire disk" option (I did a fresh install, no resize) and, in the end, I've created an username. That's basically it! The whole installation took about 10 minutes. However, I didn't count them. As always, I wanted to play some Mahjongg while installing, but Linux Mint doesn't have any games installed, so I went on another computer.

Review of Ubuntu Phone – A Work Still Under Progress

However, what one must remember is that the Ubuntu Phone is still a work in progress. The company is issuing updates every month and is relying on its current user base regarding the feedback and ideas. Right now, only three Ubuntu phones are present in the market ranging from $186 to $328 roughly. Ubuntu has been in hibernation mode for the development of this OS for a long time and it looked like they might be consumer ready now, however, after seeing the Ubuntu Phone it looks like they might be far from that scenario right now.
