OpenGEU 8.04 'Luna Crescente' Beta Live CD

Filed under
Linux

OpenGEU, previously known as Geubuntu, is described on the project's website as “a complete and fully functional operative (sic) system based on Ubuntu.” What OpenGEU does is blend elements of the GNOME desktop environment, with E17 (E16 is the stable version) and Ubuntu.

You know at the outset that any distribution based on Ubuntu (and lord, aren't there a lot of them) will be stable and have a vast software repository available to its users.

But, to make your distribution stand out from the rest, you need to do more than just give it a new wallpaper and a fancy name.

E17 is that something more.

In OpenGEU it includes a desktop shell, comprised of a Window Manager, a full set of libraries, a desktop and a collection of modules and applications.

In live CD mode OpenGEU took an eternity to load but once I got to the E17 desktop – wow!

Huawei CEO: Will keep using Android as long as it's open

He made the said comment in a Weibo post, where-in he also noted that Google's mobile OS has promoted the development of smartphones, which in turn has benefited consumers. Interestingly, he didn't say anything about whether or not Huawei is developing an in-house mobile OS - said to be called Kirin OS. His silence on the matter, though, can be taken as a confirmation of sorts, especially when his comment reflects the possibility of Google restricting the companies’ freedom with Android in future.
