PCe17OS, The Second

Filed under
PCLOS

I've always like the first release of PCe17OS although at first, I had a slight problem with changing to my user login. It was beautiful and it was beautiful. However, I can't truly say the same for the second even though much of the bells and whistles were still intact. I am not saying it is PCe17OS rather the Enlightenment 17 project seemed to be going nowhere, and I really like that DE along with the PCLinuxOS-based E17 project.

Sandor Lisovszki of PCLinuxOS Hungary recently announced the second offering of the second PCe17OS in English so I went and downloaded the 1.3Gb ISO. The announcement can be viewed at the PCe17OS International Support Forum.There were posts on the forum regarding issues with Entrance so that's noted. I tested this flavor of PCLinuxOS with VirtualBox 2.1.4 so basically it should work on an average machine.

Six Clicks: An early look at Ubuntu 14.10

For now, if Ubuntu 14.10's Unity default page look familiar, well it should. On the surface, Canonical, Ubuntu's parent company, has done little with the Unity interface. While experienced Linux users tend not to like it, I still find it to be a great desktop for new users. Under the hood, Unity is still using the X.Org display server instead of Mir, Ubuntu's next generation display server. While Mir and Unity 8 are still being worked on, Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth doesn't see Mir becoming the desktop default until Ubuntu 16.04 LTS appears two years from now. Read more
