MadBox 10.10 Review - An Ubuntu Based Openbox Distro

MadBox is a relatively new Ubuntu-based Openbox distribution. It tries to cater to CrunchBang (“#!”) Linux users who want an Ubuntu-based Openbox distribution (as #! switched to a Debian base almost a year ago), as well as to users who want a fast and lightweight OS or one that will work on a slower computer without sacrificing polish.

MadBox 10.10 Review

I've used #! a few times before, and (aside from version 10 “Statler” Alpha 2 as that was a very early pre-release build) it never fails to give me a warm and fuzzy feeling and make me seriously consider switching to it from my favorite Linux Mint. Continue reading to see if MadBox can elicit similar fuzzy feelings. I tested this on a live USB made with UnetBootin; I didn't test the installation because, well, it's Ubiquity – how different could it be from one Ubuntu-based distribution to another?

No one knows when it will happen. No one knows the magnitude. Read more

Android Marshmallow on PC Falls Flat

The Android-x86 Project eventually may become a viable operating system alternative for your desktop and laptops computers, but it's not there yet. You will have to wait a while for the developers to fix a number of failures with the latest release upgrading Android-x86 to Marshmallow 6.0.1. The developers late this summer released the first stable version of Android-x86 6.0, codenamed "Marshmallow." Android-x86 lets you run the Android OS with the Google Chrome browser on your desktop and laptop computers, rather than buying one of the qualified Chromebooks with the Google Play Store features bolted on.
