Novell SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop Review

Filed under
Reviews
SUSE

I downloaded the DVD iso off the Novell website, and burned it using Nero (running Windows at that time); I rebooted the computer, and went through the installation process; nothing spectacular about the installation. Once fully installed, I made a user account as instructed by the wizard, and everything was ready to go.

On the first reboot you'll find the speed of it considerably faster than that of the default Windows XP installation; now given that vendors chock their machines full of crap like 'speed boosters' and 'security tools' (which do more harm than good), its probably not fair to compare them given its a vanilla SLED installation vs. a bastardised Windows XP installation, with that being said, however, one has to compare like with like; a copy included with the machine vs. the alternative operating system which is to replace.

Full Story.

Not a very good review

Honestly, I don't think the guy gives the kind of thorough review we would expect from srlinuxx. And I know the guy's from New Zealand, and seems to have a command of the English language. Can't he use a spell checker, or something?

3 open source alternatives to Office 365

It can be hard to get away from working and collaborating on the web. Doing that is incredibly convenient: as long as you have an internet connection, you can easily work and share from just about anywhere, on just about any device. The main problem with most web-based office suites—like Google Drive, Zoho Office, and Office365—is that they're closed source. Your data also exists at the whim of large corporations. I'm sure you've heard numerous stories of, say, Google locking or removing accounts without warning. If that happens to you, you lose what's yours. So what's an open source advocate who wants to work with web applications to do? You turn to an open source alternative, of course. Let's take a look at three of them. Read more

Hackable voice-controlled speaker and IoT controller hits KS

SeedStudio’s hackable, $49 and up “ReSpeaker” speaker system runs OpenWrt on a Mediatek MT7688 and offers voice control over home appliances. The ReSpeaker went live on Kickstarter today and has already reached 95 percent of its $40,000 funding goal with 29 days remaining. The device is billed by SeedStudio as an “open source, modular voice interface that allows us to hack things around us, just using our voices.” While it can be used as an Internet media player or a voice-activated IoT hub — especially when integrated with Seeed’s Wio Link IoT board — it’s designed to be paired with individual devices. For example, the campaign’s video shows the ReSpeaker being tucked inside a teddy bear or toy robot, or attached to plant, enabling voice control and voice synthesis. Yes, the plant actually asks to be watered. Read more
