The Linux Desktop Experience For 2010

Filed under
Linux

I’ve been looking at the vast range of Linux desktop flavours around and I thought it might be interesting to give my opinion on what I believe to be right up there as the best from my experience of trying them.

Instead of saying what I believe is the best in terms of the distribution though I’m going to provide a list of the best 3 Linux desktops for it’s desktop implementation of Gnome,KDE,XFCE and the experience as a whole.

1. Linux Mint 8 – Main Edition

No surprises here then, I use this for every day use and although I’m considering to move to the Linux Mint XFCE flavour. I still think that Linux Mint is the very best in making the Gnome desktop experience the best experience out there.

It’s also a great experience for beginners and people who simply cannot be bothered to compile or configure everything any more because Linux Mint does this for you and more and like many have stated it certainly does “just work”

The Gnome desktop is a environment that works well for most hardware as well.

Intel Beignet Is Working Out Surprisingly Well For OpenCL On Linux

Beignet is the project out of Intel's Open-Source Technology Center for exposing GPGPU/compute capabilities out of Ivy Bridge hardware and newer when using a fully open-source Linux stack. While Beignet differs greatly from Gallium3D's Clover state tracker, this Intel-specific open-source OpenCL implementation is working out quite well for Ubuntu Linux. While I've been writing about Intel's Beignet project since early 2013, it's probably been about a year now since I tried out the code, which is developed by Intel's OTC graphics team in China. This weekend I tried out Beignet v0.9.2 as trying out the newest Intel OpenCL code has been on my TODO list for a while and it's been working out rather well in my initial tests. Read more
