Fedora 11 mini-review

Filed under
Linux

I'm glad to say that my wife is a huge Linux fan. Her first Linux distro was Red Hat 7, and we've upgraded her as each new release has come out. She's been a Linux devotee ever since!

Usually, I prefer to install using a DVD image that I download and burn to media. But this time, I figured I'd try something different - I turned the "Fedora 11 Desktop Edition" Live CD into a Live USB. There's even a Windows version of the tool that does this for you. With a Live CD (or Live USB) you can boot your system and run programs just like you were in an installed environment, then (if you like what you see) you can install Linux to your hard drive.

Live USB made installation a snap! Simply boot the laptop from USB, and open the "Install to Hard Drive" icon. The install process was easy, and fast!

PC-MOS/386 is the latest obsolete operating system to open source on Github

PC-MOS/386 was first announced by The Software Link in 1986 and was released in early 1987. It was capable of working on any x86 computer (though the Intel 80386 was its target market). However, some later chips became incompatible because they didn't have the necessary memory management unit. It had a dedicated following but also contained a couple of design flaws that made it slow and/or expensive to run. Add to that the fact it had a Y2K bug that manifested on 31 July 2012, after which any files created wouldn't work, and it's not surprising that it didn't become the gold standard. The last copyright date listed is 1992, although some users have claimed to be using it far longer. Read more
