Foresight Linux Review

Filed under
Linux

Foresight Linux was supplied on the most recent Linux Format Magazine disc. I gave it 1 GB of RAM and started her off. I read on the website that Foresight is meant to be easy for the end user and is also supposed to showcase the latest Gnome programs.

Also, the package management is revolutionary in the sense that it only downloads what has changed in the latest patch. Fedora’s been trying to get something similar off the ground since about Feodra 7. Fedora 9 somewhat supports it, but I only heard about the support because I’m a member of the Fedora mailling lists. I imagine this won’t make much of a difference for most programs. But for programs like Open Office.org that weigh in at 400+ MB, it can make a HUGE difference! Also, outside of the US where people have to pay per MB downloaded, this can be the feature that makes Foresight the next Ubuntu. So I’ll be testing the distro for whether it truly is more user friendly than other Gnome offerings and I’ll test the update system.
