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.

Edubuntu Vs UberStudent: Return To College With The Best Linux Distro

Importantly, there are a handful of programs that are on Edubuntu that UberStudent doesn’t have, such as KAlgebra, Kazium, KGeography, and Marble. Instead, UberStudent has a smaller collection of applications but it does include some useful items when it comes to writing papers that Edubuntu does not have. So ultimately, Edubuntu includes more programs that are information-heavy, while UberStudent includes more tools that can aid students in their studies but doesn’t directly give them any sort of information.

Zotac Nvidia Jetson TK1 review

The Jetson TK1, Nvidia’s first development board to be marketed at the general public, has taken a circuitous route to our shores. Unveiled at the company’s Graphics Technology Conference earlier this year, the board launched in the US at a headline-grabbing price of $192 but its international release was hampered by export regulations. Zotac, already an Nvidia partner for its graphics hardware, volunteered to sort things out and has partnered with Maplin to bring the board to the UK. In doing so, however, the price has become a little muddled. $192 – a clever dollar per GPU core – has become £199.99. Compared to Maplin’s other single-board computer, the sub-£30 Raspberry Pi, it’s a high-end item that could find itself priced out of the reach of the company’s usual customers. Read more
