Pardus Linux 2009 International on my Thinkpad T60

Filed under
Linux

Well, if you really want to fall in love with a Linux distro, you got to try Pardus 2009 International. You got to give it to the Turks, they created the next great sensation in the Linux world with this distro. Move over Sabayon and Linux Mint, Pardus 2009 is awesome!!! To make it even better, they are one of the first distros to incorporate KDE4 that reminds me alot of KDE 3.5. The Pardus developers made KDE4 usable!!! Smile

Installing Pardus 2009 International is quite simple. Pardus’s eye candy is very similar to Sabayon Linux. After your first login, Kaptan will pop up. You will use Kaptan to configure the settings of your computer.

Refracta 8.0 Is a Pint-Sized Powerhouse

Refracta is a somewhat obscure Linux distribution that offers exceptional functionality and stability. Obscurity is not always a bad thing when it comes to Linux distros.

Many look-alike desktop distros are difficult to distinguish from run-of-the-mill garden varieties. Others offer new adopters something unique that makes using them fun and productive. Refracta is one of the few full-service Linux distros that makes an easy and more convenient replacement for pocket Linux options such as Puppy Linux. Not all Linux distros that install to a USB drive -- and have the ability to save files and system settings in a persistent mode -- work equally well. Read more

Clear Linux With Mesa 13 Is A Strong Match For Intel Linux Performance

When benchmarking Intel's Clear Linux distribution earlier this year we found its Intel graphics performance to be quite good and slightly faster than other Linux distributions even when Clear was using an older version of Mesa. Now with Clear Linux having switched to Mesa 13, I decided to run some fresh Intel OpenGL benchmarks on it compared to other distributions. Read more
