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?

Why I prefer Samsung Gear’s Tizen to Android Wear

A few months ago our US Senior Editor Andrew Grush offered his praise of the Moto 360, having spent a month with it. Despite the quality of the writing itself, I took issue with the core of the content: that Android Wear is a suitable platform for wearables. I have to disagree, at least as things now stand. Android Wear seems fundamentally broken due to its being chained to Google Now and a smartphone, something not so true of Samsung’s Gear products, which run on Tizen. After a discussion with Andrew however, a larger issue surfaced: the divergent opinion is largely based on the individual’s needs and expectations. To this end, I felt it an interesting experiment to delve into the functionality of both, and try and give readers a bit more insight into the very different paths that Google and Samsung are taking with their wearables.
