Distro Hoppin`: iGolaware Linux 2.0

Filed under
Linux

I will be taking a look at yet another Ubuntu-based distribution, called iGolaware 2.0. Quite a catchy name, right? No? Well, it might not sound like much, but hey, look where UBUNTU is today.

There are some OSes out there that make you feel like /home right from the Live environment. I feel obliged to inform you that, for me, iGolaware is one of those and if I will seem a bit biased towards it, you'll know why. Big Grin I'll try not to, but hey, just in case, there's my disclaimer. It's the first time I've heard about this distribution so I had zero expectations. OK, I'm lying, I was expecting a sloppy remix of Ubuntu, a distro that was simply made out of boredom and had no future ahead of it. But surprise, surprise, iGolaware is quite a serious project included in the portfolio of quite a serious IT consulting/solutions-provider startup in Netherlands.

The image file is ~1.2 GB in size, but is being pushed through quite a fast server, as it reached my computer with speeds of 4-5 MB/s. Bonus points for that! In case you're experiencing slow speeds, there's a handy sourceforge mirror on the download page.

Hands-on: New PCLinuxOS installation images

PCLinuxOS is an independent distribution, it is not derived from or dependent upon any other current distribution. It is a rolling-release distribution, so it gets a steady flow of updates rather than having periodic point-releases. There was a time when the intention was to update the PCLinuxOS distribution images quarterly, but it seems that turned out to be too much work for too little return. Read more

budgie-remix 16.04.2 Comes Equipped with the HWE Kernel from Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS

The great folks from the Ubuntu Budgie (formerly budgie-remix) GNU/Linux distribution had the pleasure of announcing the general availability of budgie-remix 16.04.2. What's budgie-remix 16.04.2, you may wonder? Well, as Ubuntu Budgie did not yet have a stable release, and because many people are still using the distro on their PCs with its previous name (budgie-remix), the developers updated it to be based on the recently released Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system. Being based on Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS, which inherits the newer Linux 4.8 kernel and an updated graphics stack based on Mesa 12.0 3D Graphics Library from Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak), budgie-remix 16.04.2 comes equipped with its HWE kernel and graphics stack, as well as the latest Budgie 10.2.9 desktop environment.
