Tell us all about you!

Who am I? That’s quite a question. But let me try… My name is Oliver Burger (aka obgr_seneca) and I live in southwest Germany. At the moment I’m doing something called dual studying here. It means that about half the year I am at a University and the other half I’m at a company, developing mainly web based geographical information systems but other web applications aas well.

How/where do you contribute to Mageia? What else do you contribute to? Why?

I am an active member of the German Mandriva community MandrivaUser.de, I was a Mandriva translator since about 2007 and I was one of the packagers creating the mud third party packages.

Since MandrivaUser.de had its differences with Mandriva S.A. for quite some time, Mageia was the best thing that could have happened. “Our” distribution living on without the influence of a strange company we had to live with…

At Mageia I am team leader of the i18n team. In addition I am in web team and packaging team.

Rest here

Lenovo G50 & CentOS 7.2 MATE - Fairly solid

Is there a perfect track record for any which distro? No. Do any two desktop environments ever behave the same? No. Is there anything really good and cool about the MATE offering? Yes, definitely. It's not the finest, but it's definitely quite all right. You do get very decent hardware support, adequate battery life and good performance, smartphone and media support is top notch, and your applications will all run happily. On the other hand, you will struggle with Samba and Bluetooth, and there are some odd issues here and there. I think the Gnome and Xfce offerings are better, but MATE is not to be dissed as a useless relic. Far from it, this is definitely an option you ought to consider if you're into less-than-mainstream desktops, and you happen to like CentOS. To sum it all up, another goodie in the growing arsenal of CentOS fun facts. Enjoy. Read more
