Linux Deepin review - beautifully perfect

Filed under
Linux

This weekend, I decided to install a new distro on my netbook. I saw Linux Deepin just released a new version so I gave it a try. And it was a right decision, Linux Deepin is really a perfect distro in my opinion.

Linux Deepin overview

Linux Deepin is based on Ubuntu ( I guess it must be Ubuntu 12.04 LTS). The ISO image of Linux Deepin 12.12 is over 1GB so you will need a DVD or a big enough USB to install it. As usual, I used Unetbootin to create a bootable USB and boot up the live version without any trouble.

Installing Linux Deepin is similar to Ubuntu or Linux Mint since it also uses the ubiquity installer. However, when you decide to install Linux Deepin, you will be asked to choose between Chinese and English since Linux Deepin is from China. It didnt take me long to get Linux Deepin installed to my netbook:

2016 might just be the year of Linux on the (virtual) desktop

Come November, some “pundit” will declare that next year is the year of Linux on the desktop.

That kit is called the “Linux Virtual Desktop Tech Preview” and can be had here if you're a XenApp or XenDesktop customer with an active Subscription Advantage account. Citrix Partners can get it too. Read more

Microsoft & Education: The Song Remains the Same

One of our hardware donors emailed me and asked if I would come to Austin and pick up a dozen Optiplex 745s with 17 inch monitors and accompanying keyboards. These Dells already had scrubbed drives and had either 4 or 8 GB of RAM, depending on what they were originally assigned to do. I said I most certainly would and arranged a time to be there. This donor has been especially generous to us, and not with just decent hardware. They also present us an annual Christmas cash donation of $1000. On the years they do employee matching, it is more than that — a lot more. Read more
