7 E17 Distributions

Filed under
Linux

KDE4 is not the only desktop environment which provides a sleek eye candy experience. E17 still remains to be one of the only Desktop Environments/Window Manager, which provides a speedy and visually pleasing experience. There are some distributions which use E17 to provide an attractive and speedy operating system, where many seem to be unique compared to many KDE, Gnome and XFCE distributions:

OpenGEU
OpenGEU is an Ubuntu based distribution maintained by the lead developer, TheDarkMaster and other community members. OpenGEU aims to be a friendly and complete distribution with the use of GTK applications and the gnome desktop to provide a fast and attractive OS. OpenGEU provides very pleasing and unique themes (Light and dark) adding a theme manager to provide a better ease of use in changing wallpapers, fonts, icon, gtk, etk, e17, ewl themes etc. Echomorph (A hard hacked compiz WM, providing Compiz effects) is also provided in OpenGEU 8.10.

BSDanywhere
BSDanywhere is an OpenBSD based distribution, with the main purpose of being a LiveCD for specific uses. BSDanywhere “consists of the entire OpenBSD base system (without compiler) plus graphical desktop, an unrepresentative collection of software, automatic hardware detection and support for many graphics cards, sound cards, SCSI and USB devices as well as other peripherals.” This OpenBSD distro is not meant for installing due to the developers aim being to construct a distritbution for complete hardware testing, systems recovery and mobile usage in murky environments.

  • Container-friendly Alpine Linux may get Java port
    A proposal floated this week on an OpenJDK mailing list calls for porting the JDK (Java Development Kit), including the Java Runtime Environment, Java compiler and APIs, to both the distribution and the musl C standard library, which is supported by Alpine Linux. The key focus here is musl; Java has previously been ported to the standard glibc library, which you can install in Alpine, but the standard Alpine release switched two years ago to musl because it’s much faster and more compact.

Jolla inks exclusive license to kick-start its Android alternative in China

Mobile OS maker Jolla, whose Sailfish platform remains one of the few smartphone alternatives in play these days, has signed an exclusive license to a Chinese consortium to develop a Sailfish-based OS for the country. Jolla says the Chinese consortium will be aiming to invest $250M in developing a Sailfish ecosystem for the country, though it’s not specifying exactly is backing the consortia at this point, nor over what timeframe the investment will happen — beyond saying one of its early investors, a local private equity investor Shan Li, will take a “leading role” in building it up. “There are very big players behind it,” Jolla chairman Antti Saarnio tells TechCrunch, speaking ahead of a press conference held to announce the news here at the Mobile World Congress tradeshow in Barcelona.
