Netrunner 12.12 review - Starts low, ends high

Filed under
Linux

Netrunner is a Kubuntu-based distro, with some extras of its own. Only the last time I tested Netrunner, I was not that much impressed. The distro was plagued with bugs and little issues, all of which cropped from its transformation from a stock Kubuntu into something more. But therein lies the rub, the magic. How do you makeover a distro without adding problems?

Six months since Dryland, the latest version promises to take care of the problems and offer a fresh new experience to its users. Let's see if this is indeed true. Anyhow, I am writing this review with possibly some friendly bias, since you may have read my articles in Netrunner Magazine, but that should not bother you much. You will get the story as it is, no sugarcoating. Do follow me.

An open source, e-commerce friendly CMS

Developers Peter Ivanov, Alex Raikov, and I came up with the idea for Microweber about five years ago, when we were all having problems building sites with the existing solutions.

The earliest versions were licensed under GPL, but we switched to Apache License version 2.0 to allow the developers to protect their work and have commercial merits. Read more

What is open source? Licensing, history, and more

Another example of open source: You wouldn’t buy a car with the hood welded shut, so why do we buy proprietary software? If you can’t see what’s going on and see what’s happening under the hood then you’re stuck with the car exactly the way it is and that might not be so great. While some people are fine with that, computer geeks shouldn’t be. We should want to get in there and tinker with it. Read more
