Leeenux Review – Linux OS for Asus Eee 701

Filed under
Linux

There are countless Linux distros out there for the netbooks. Do we really need another one? Well, if you still use the first generation Eee PC or have it lying around as it is of no use to you, Leeenux OS can give a new life to it. It is tailor-made for those who are having trouble in getting all the newer Linux distros to work on it – Ubuntu, Ubuntu UNR, Kubuntu and so on. They run fine on the newer netbooks, but give myriad of problems on the Eee 700-series. Another problem is that the newer distros are not made with the old Eee 701 netbook in mind that have just 4GB of flash storage.

The solution to all these problems is Leeenux.

An open source, e-commerce friendly CMS

Developers Peter Ivanov, Alex Raikov, and I came up with the idea for Microweber about five years ago, when we were all having problems building sites with the existing solutions. Microweber aims to take the complexity out of building a website, online shop, or blog, through a combination of drag-and-drop UI and real-time, WYSIWYG site edits. From the beginning, it's been an open source project. The earliest versions were licensed under GPL, but we switched to Apache License version 2.0 to allow the developers to protect their work and have commercial merits. Read more

What is open source? Licensing, history, and more

Another example of open source: You wouldn’t buy a car with the hood welded shut, so why do we buy proprietary software? If you can’t see what’s going on and see what’s happening under the hood then you’re stuck with the car exactly the way it is and that might not be so great. While some people are fine with that, computer geeks shouldn’t be. We should want to get in there and tinker with it. Read more
