Distro Hoppin`: Saline OS 1.3

Filed under
Linux

As this Debian-based operating system is quite easy to install, setup and, once that is done, it lets you run about your daily computing routine.

But first of all, you will need a blank DVD or an USB stick with at least 1 GB of space, as the ~900 MBs of data won't fit on a trusty old CD. Well, at least we're still far from BluRay-size distros. Big Grin

As pretty much the de facto nowadays, Saline comes with a live environment with which you can play around and see if you like it and if it likes you and your machine. Just like a blind date; no obligation to meet for a second time.

Everything went well, so I invited Saline OS into my hard drive. I did that by double clicking "Remastersys Installer" on the desktop. I think renaming it to "Installer" would've been a good idea, since Xfce only shows the first 8 letters of each shortcut, leading to a confusing "Remaster..." title, which can be a bit newbie unfriendly. Sure enough, once the user gets curious enough and highlights the icon, it will all be revealed. Moreover, there is also a link to the installer inside the "System" category within the Applications menu.

Head 2 Head: Android OS vs. Chrome OS

A large part of Google’s OS success hasn’t been because of its awesomeness. No. Frankly, we think nothing speaks louder than the almighty dollar in this world. But both are “free,” right? So this is tie? Not really. Although Android is technically free since Google doesn’t charge device makers for it, there are costs associated with getting devices “certified.” Oh, yeah, and then there’s Apple and Microsoft, both of which get healthy payouts from device makers through patent lawsuits. Microsoft reportedly makes far more from Android sales than Windows Phone sales. You just generally don’t see the price because it’s abstracted by carriers. Chrome OS, on the other hand, actually is pretty much free. A top-ofthe-line Chromebook is $280, while a top-of-the-line Android phone full retail is usually $600. We’re giving this one to Chrome OS because if it’s generally cheaper for the builder, it’s cheaper for you. Read more
