Absolutely beautiful desktop with PClinuxOS E17 edition

Filed under

I have been a fan of Enlightenment for a long, long time. It’s one of the most elegant desktops available today. But not only is it elegant looking, it’s a joy to use, more flexible than most desktops, and lighter weight than the “big 2″ Linux desktops.

Cleaning Linux: Jed’s Nappy /boot

My home NAS machine is an Ubuntu 14.04 machine with a ZFS volume. I need the linux-headers packages in order to compile my ZFS dkms modules. Those take more space than the kernels tend to, so I try and stay on top of removing them. Wonder how many I have? (Read the rest at FreedomPenguin)
