Linux For The Masses

Filed under
Linux

As long as it doesn’t change!

That’s what it feels like from everyone who wants GNU/Linux to be used. I’m in a group that’s considered outdated at best because I think everyone should know the command line, and how to really get things done. Yet, not once did I ever knock GUIs, I only stated that the command line is faster, and better in almost all cases. The GUI is just meant to be simple, period. Now the same people that say my way is outdated, and I’m one of the ones holding back the growth of Linux, which is as far from the truth as possible, are screaming that certain projects should stop what they’re doing and go back to the old DE of the GNOME 2 series. Their reason for it? If they don’t it will ruin GNU/Linux and it won’t be adopted by the masses.

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.
