Installing SUSE Linux 10.0 on a laptop

SUSE

I recently installed the open source software (OSS) version of SUSE Linux 10.0 on my Gateway M520CS laptop computer, and would like to share my impressions of the product so far. This is the third distribution that has been installed on this laptop, with Mandrake Linux 10.1 and Fedora Core 4 both preceding SUSE 10.0. SUSE 10.0 outshines both of the other distributions so far.

Both Mandrake Linux 10.1 and Fedora Core 4 installed fine on this machine, but both had problems. Let's delve into these problems a bit before we look at whether SUSE did any better.

Full Story.

The problem with TopMenu is that it only partially supports GTK3, it doesn't support LibreOffice, and with Ubuntu 16.04, it doesn't support Qt (4 or 5) applications. Here's where Vala Panel AppMenu comes in.

Reviews: OpenELEC and Clear Linux

I next turned my attention to a distribution which has only recently been added to the DistroWatch database: Clear Linux. The Clear Linux distribution is unusual in a few ways. For one, the project is not designed to be a full featured or general purpose operating system; Clear Linux focuses on performance more than features. The distribution is fairly minimal and is designed with cloud computing in mind, though it may also be used in other areas, particularly on servers. Read more
